Jerwood SII, Hofesh Shechter Company

Jerwood awards a £60,000 grant to support Shechter II’s 12-month Performance and Development Programme. This programme includes a six-week creation process, and a UK and international mid-scale sustainable tour with community and outreach delivery. This new development opportunity will offer a rolling programme of discovery for the selected dancers including: studio time with another choreographer; a fund for dancers to explore specific research ideas; dedicated time with a dance scientist; teaching skills development; skills in self-promotion, and preparation for the transition to a professional career.


Evelien Jansen, Shechter II 2020, said:

From the start Shechter II felt like coming home. In this professional setting I learned a lot about my body and its possibilities. Besides this, it created great new opportunities in the field! I feel very blessed to have had this experience.
