Bedroom Folk – Sharon Eyal & Gai Behar

Creators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar have been, together with musician Ori Lichtik, an innovative trio in the contemporary dance world for years. For their new creation for NDT 1 they’ve engaged in a first time collaboration with set and lighting designer Thierry Dreyfus. In these multi-disciplinary efforts movement, sound and lighting stand side by side, creating pieces that exceed the borders of ‘tradtional’ contemporary dance and turn all the elements into equal protagonists.

For Skin of the mind, Sharon Eyal is working on a renewed version of the work with NDT 1.

If there is a dance language that locks into the zeitgeist, then it’s the one by Israeli creators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar.
