In 2012, Shechter’s touring production finally stops in Toronto for a 6-performance run at Canadian Stage. Part dance spectacle, part rock gig, Political Motherhas been called everything from an extended metaphor on political oppression to a “howling beast of a dance show.” An intoxicating, full-throttle, immersive experience that is sure to be the dance event of the year.
