In this first of two episodes, Israeli-born and UK-based contemporary artist Hofesh Shechter, former rock drummer and dancer with Batsheva Dance Company, talks about striking out on his own as a choreographer. An encounter with John Ashford, Theatre Director at The Place in London, UK, mentor to numerous artists and presenters, results in an invitation to become an associate artist of The Place where he creates a group piece that receives an audience award. Hofesh goes on to describe his early and ongoing relationship to music.
