Hofesh Shechter is one of the most intense and visceral contemporary choreographers. Perhaps because the music is almost always composed by himself, and is closely in tune with the energy of his movement. The result is a punch, in his words, which hits the spectator like a wave of energy.
In Wolf, an old piece of his which he has now recreated for 16 Aterballetto dancers, we find a kind of wild animal quality, running intermittently through the men and women. The overall composition carries us into a totally original and engaging universe.
