On Wednesday 20 September 2023 we celebrated 15 years of dance making with a special anniversary event at Curzon Soho, London.
Our 220 guests enjoyed a full evening of celebration with Hofesh, our dancers and company plus very special guests, director Cédric Klapisch, musician Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk), actor Nikki Amuka-Bird and journalist David Jays, as we brought Klapisch’s feature film – a ‘love letter to […] dance’ (Los Angeles Times) starring Hofesh and our company – back to London’s big screen for one night only.
Our celebration included a pre-screening champagne reception; a welcome from Hofesh Shecter Company and journalist David Jays followed by the film screening of RISE; a post-screening panel discussion with Hofesh, Cédric Klapisch, Thomas Bangalter, Nikki Amuka-Bird and David Jays as they spoke about the film, their collaborations, and looked back over our 15-year journey; followed by dancing and music by DJ GOLDEN RATIФ at a post screening party.
Proceeds from ticket sales contributed to our new creations in 2024.
