Choreographer Sharon Eyal (Israel, 1971) danced with Batsheva Dance Company from 1990 to 2009, served as its Associate Art Director in the 2003-2004 season, and as a house choreographer from 2005 to 2012. Eyal created 12 new works for the company.

Since 2005, Eyal began working together with producer Gai Behar. They have collaborated on her creations and the L-E-V company – founded in 2013 – ever since. Alongside their L-E-V repertoire, Eyal and Behar have created works for other companies, like NDT, the Berlin Staatsballett, the Royal Swedish Ballet and more.

This coming season, Eyal’s L-E-V and NDT have joined forces for an expanded interpretation of Into the Hairy. The extended cast of more than 20 dancers investigates a new perspective on the powerful work’s idiosyncratic universe.

Dance comes from your stomach, from your heart, from your brain. The dance comes from your body, in its entirety. Because it is a complete combination, all the organs are connected, from the brain to the heart. You can’t dance with just one part of your body, you dance with your whole body.
