Sun is a visually stunning and entertaining piece of dance theatre, brought to life by an incredibly skilled company of 16 world class dancers.

Shechter created Sun’s fabulous theatrical world with set designer Merle Hensel, lighting designer Lee Curran and costume designer Christina Cunningham.

The powerfully-atmospheric sound track is composed by Shechter himself with additional music from Wagner, Irving Berlin and Sigur Ros.
