Part gig, part dance, part theatre and wholly original – there is no better way to describe Grand Finale, the latest work of internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter.
Spectacularly bold and ambitious, Grand Finale is at once comic, bleak and beautiful, evoking a world at odds with itself, full of anarchic energy and violent comedy. Filtering this irrepressible spirit, Shechter creates a vision of a world in freefall, featuring an exceptional ensemble of dancers and a live band of musicians.
In 2018 Grand Finale was nominated for an Olivier award for Best New Dance Production and for Outstanding Production in the Bessies. It was also named Production of the Year by tanz magazine. This year Grand Finale won a 2019 Dora Award for Outstanding Touring Performance and was nominated for Best Dance Production in the 2019 Helpmann Awards.
Grand Finale premiered at La Villette Paris with Théâtre de la Ville on 14 June 2017.
