Sharon Eyal has collaborated with Gai Behar, another key figure of contemporary Israeli art, for a decade. Ori Lichtik, who is responsible for the music, joined them in 2013, when the three established their own company. Eyal had worked in the Batsheva Dance Company as a dancer and choreographer, while Behar had organized underground events with live music in Tel Aviv car parks and basements.
Trafó’s stage is as fitting a setting for their cooperation as a techno club. Their style blends the Gaga technique inherited from Batsheva with Eyal’s signature androgynous eroticism. Sensual, urban-tribal urges pulsate in an alienated, mechanical world.
L-E-V derives its name from the Hebrew “heart,” and Sharon Eyal’s choreography, OCD Love, is in part concerned with matters of the heart. The other chief interest is the obsessive-compulsive disorder, which hinders love. This powerful dance performance throbs with Ori Lichtik’s techno beats.
