From England with Love is an ode to this intricate and beautiful country. Through Shechter’s choreography, the dancers evoke the paradox at the heart of this open, generous, and soul-searching place, conflicted by its dark history and powerful attachment to old traditions. They draw us into their search for identity and self-knowledge. Performed to a rich score that clashes the breath-taking sounds of English composers with raging rock music alongside echoes of choir and electronics.

Playful and poignant, full of pride and paradox, From England with Love is a farewell note to old England and a peek into the heart and soul of this multifaceted place.
