From England with Love at HOME Manchester, Manchester 6 — 8 June 2024 Tickets from £10.00 — Book now

This June, HOME welcomes back internationally renowned choreographer Hofesh Shechter with From England with Love, a compelling new dance production performed by the award-winning young dance company Shechter II.

Packed with pride and paradox, From England with Love is an anthem to England. With stunning choreography – set to an original score composed by Shechter – this new piece takes inspiration from some of the best English classical composers, and melds it together with raging rock rebellion, choral music and electronica. The result is an avant-garde cacophony, perfectly reflective of the multi-layered complexity of England.

Playful and poignant, through Shechter’s meticulous movement the dancers explore the ambiguities at the heart of England. Dark histories and deep-rooted traditions are juxtaposed with a modern search for identity and self-knowledge. Billed as a “farewell note to old England”, From England with Love attempts to explore England’s historical legacy and complex system of values, and the resulting contradictions, pressures and demands placed on younger generations.

Following a hugely successful premiere at the Southbank Centre in April, From England with Love heads out on an extensive international tour. Most pleasingly, the show stops at several Northern arts venues, including HOME, before heading into Europe. Seize the chance to see this incredibly talented troupe when they’re in Manchester.

From England with Love runs at around 55 minutes long and is recommended for ages 12+.
