About the programme

For this expanded interpretation of Into the Hairy (2023), NDT and Sharon Eyal’s L-E-V have joined forces. Originally created for 7 dancers, this collaboration unites two companies in an extended cast of more than 20 dancers to investigate a new perspective on the unique universe of the work. Together with co-creator Gai Behar and an original score by artist and composer Koreless, Eyal has created an evocative, unsettling, and dystopian journey. 

 Into the Hairy is a powerful, idiosyncratic work about the strength in vulnerability. The language of movement is hypnotizing, rhythmic, and elusive, the culmination of improvised moves caught and harnessed in a highly sensory and virtuosic form. Clad in bodysuits that highlight every move and muscle, the dancers exude a detached, otherworldly air and leave the audience entranced. Into the Hairy tests the limits of contemporary dance by connecting classical dance with the underground club culture.  

This is a coproduction with L-E-V Dance Company

Co-produced by Julidans (Amsterdam) and MART Foundation (New York)

Eyal, who is known for her unexpected endings, puts on a performance that continues to reverberate in the subconscious mind for some time. Chances are that after seeing this performance, you’ll wake up from an unpleasant nightmare.
