BAM's 30th Next Wave festival presents the New York Premiere of Hofesh Shecter Company's 'Political Mother.' A heart-stopping, explosive assault on the senses, 'Political Mother' invokes an atmosphere of struggle and conflict, where repression is met with resistance and survival is paramount. A heavy metal rock band--at full tilt on a raised platform--performs Shechter's own propulsive score while the dancers move collectively, surging and collapsing in sublime counterpoint. Alive with existential fire and raw physicality, Political Mother echoes our universal search for emotional connection amid the violence and chaos of our contemporary world.
