Grand Finale — Hofesh Shechter Company
Presenting a hauntingly familiar planet gripped by ecological and social disaster, this performance remains cautiously optimistic.
Catch legendary Israeli choreographer Hofesh Shechter's latest electrifying production, as he embraces the crazy times we live in by weaving a dark but comical apocalyptic tale about the end of time. Grand Finale combines elements of dance, theatre and live music gigs as a troupe of world-class performers elegantly move their way through an oncoming storm and a society in free-fall. Subtly optimistic about the downfall of the world, Grand Finale might leave you feeling slightly better about our state of affairs.
Shechter's previous theatre productions — Uprising, Sun and In your rooms — have impressed Melbourne's audiences over recent years and Grand Finale looks to be no different, having already been nominated for two Helpmann Awards, which celebrate Australia's top performance artists. Across four special nights for Melbourne International Arts Festival, the show appears at Arts Centre Melbourne with tickets available from $39. Stick around after the show on Friday, October 11, for a Q&A with the creatives.
