Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart

L-E-V/Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar


“Moment. Silence. Dryness. Emptiness. Fear. Wholeness. Concealment. Longing. Black. Moon. Water. Corner. Smell. Demon. Gap. Coldness. Eyes. Intension. Impulse. Fold. Hideout. Color. Lis. Salt. huge. Side. Stitches. Love. Point.” (Sharon Eyal)

With “Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart”, the world-renowned Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal and her company L-E-V present the third and final part of their trilogy on love (Part 2 was shown at HELLERAU in February 2019). The nine dancers embark on an intense, intoxicating journey through the highs and lows of human relationships. Explosive body whirls and precise ballet quotes alternate with light, ironic voguing passages, accompanied by Ori Lichtik’s live mixed sound cosmos.

Sharon Eyal is a world-renowned choreographer with an unmistakable signature: She develops her choreographies, which are bursting with precision and power and move on the threshold of total exhaustion, in dialogue with the techno beats of composer Ori Lichtik. She became known as a dancer and house choreographer of the world-famous Batsheva Dance Company in Tel Aviv and founded her company L-E-V, which bears the Hebrew word for “heart” in its name, together with Gai Behar in 2013. Together they create works that break down the boundaries between high culture and rave in an intoxicating way.
