Choreographie by Anouk van Dijk

Half Life
Choreography by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar
Musiv by Leo Lerus, Omer Haviv, Noga Shalev and Alon Aldiri

Sharon Eyal is an Israeli choreographer and a figure in the contemporary dance scene. Her way of asking choreographically piercing questions and setting in motion uncomfortable situations forces her performers and audience to abandon usual patterns of thoughts and personal habits. Clearly influenced by the legendary Batsheva Dance Company, her creations challenge the performers, who are provoked physically and mentally to achieve individual expression. Together with Gai Behar she heads the L-E-V Dance Company based in Tel Aviv. Both developed “Half life” 2017 for the Royal Swedish Ballet Stockholm. The piece’s attraction derives in part from the music that was created under the direction of Ori Lichtik hand-in-hand with the choreographic process.
