Current Partnerships and Projects

The BRIT School 

In 2022, HSC and BRIT School officially launched their partnership, committing to work together to widen access to professional careers in dance through alternative pathways and training. The partnership was celebrated with a large-scale re-staging of Hofesh Shechter’s Political Mother, featuring 75 BRIT students and marking BRIT’s 30th anniversary.

Northern School of Contemporary Dance

HSC and NSCD launched a long-term partnership in 2021, to increase equal opportunities, diversity, and progression pathways into the dance sector. Read our joint press release here:

Academy of Theatre & Dance, Amsterdam

This relationship had its genesis some years ago with a restaging project and has grown organically over the years, seeing 6 students from the academy now coming through the ranks of Shechter II. A focus on decolonisation of the curriculum, and student-centred learning, aligns with HSC’s drive and focus.

Dance East

HSC will work with Dance East over the coming years to engage with their local communities, and to create a Dance Hub for our apprentice company, Shechter II. More news to come. Further information on Dance East here:

Paris Conservatoires Project  

A new collaboration as part of the UK/France Spotlight programme on Culture 2024, supported by the British Council. 

Throughout this academic year, students and teachers from the Conservatoire à rayonnement régional de Paris (CRR), the Conservatoire du centre W.A Mozart (Paris1er), the Conservatoire Paul Dukas (Paris 12ème) and the Pôle supérieur d’enseignement artistique Paris – Boulogne-Billancourt (PSPBB). 

Conservatoires de la Ville de Paris and the Pôle Supérieur Paris Boulogne-Billancourt have been working with Hofesh Shechter Company, for a major project as part of the 2024 Youth Olympiad. Featuring 162 young people from across the city, who will perform their own devised extracts from a range of Hofesh’s works, the culmination of this project will be performed at Théâtre de la Ville in May, and across four sites in Paris in June as part of the Fête de la Musique.
