Building on the Southbank Centre’s vibrant history as a place for discovering the best in contemporary dance, an exciting new dance season opens this spring. Kicking off in grand fashion, the season opens with a brand-new work from choreographer Hofesh Shechter.

Performed by Shechter II, the Hofesh Shechter Company’s professional development programme for leading dancers aged 18-25, From England with Love is a paean to the multi-layered complexity that is England.

Through Shechter’s choreography, the dancers evoke the paradox at the heart of a soul-searching country that is conflicted by its dark history and powerful attachment to deep-rooted traditions.

Performed to an original score composed by Shechter, this new piece brings together the beauty, wit and invention of the best of English classical composers, presented in a clash with raging rock alongside echoes of choral song and electronics in an avant-garde cacophony.
