Hofesh Shechter Company has announced further dates for the Double Murder, presented as two distinctly contrasting pieces: Clowns and The Fix.

This new creation premièred at Sadler’s Wells in September and is currently playing across Europe as part of an extensive international tour. In 2022, Double Murder will return to the UK performing at Brighton Festival (7–8 May) before ending at HOME, Manchester (22–25 June).

Shechter said of the work, "it’s been two years in waiting and coming back to these theatres is a special moment for us all—these are theatres that have a deep-rooted connection to my company and my work, a connection I am eager to share with our audiences again through Clowns and The Fix.

"We live in a very different time now, yet those first sparks generated within the creation studio in 2019—the sense that hope was our most valuable currency—has never left us. We experienced powerful things in the studio, and now we are putting it raw on stage in order to share and preserve that power and reignite that hope."
