Description

This work specially made for NYDC contains Eyal’s signature style, conveying extreme emotions through movement. This unique choreographic approach combined with the young dancers’ energy and talent is a mesmerising experience, pushing the dancers to their limits.

"They are strong, skillful and ready for anything"

— DAILY TELEGRAPH

This summer, Sharon Eyal, Gai Behar and their full company of dancers and creative team are coming to London to Bold Tendencies.

L-E-V (meaning heart) is the confluence of movement, light, fashion, music and technology. With performances as much at home in a nightclub as they are the opera house, L-E-V will now occupy the top floors of a brutalist multi-storey car park.

These performances mark the second week of their ambitious, month-long residency as part of the Bold Tendencies summer programme

“Eyal has created a disruptive new relationship between pop culture and classical dance… Eyal pushes the body to extremes to explore a spectrum of emotion that is dark, obsessive, and beautiful. With remarkable minimalism, pieces trawl the depths of emotion and expression to demonstrate how the body gives voice to the deepest human feelings: fear, love, obsession”

Sleek Magazine

Since 2006, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar have been a significant voice in the artistic community, creating a repertoire of critically acclaimed original works for dance companies around the world as well as working on major projects outside the dance world, notably with Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director at Dior and with American rock band  The National.

In 2013 Eyal and her close collaborator, a curator of multi-disciplinary art events Gai Behar, founded L-E-V Dance Company. The culmination of years of experimentation, velocity and innovation, L-E-V is a dance ensemble choreographed by Eyal and Behar, delivered to the hypnotic and pulse-driven music of percussionist and techno musician Ori Lichtik and lighting design by Alon Cohen.   L-E-V made its London Debut at Sadler’s Wells in 2016. In July 2018 L-E-V returned to Sadler’s Wells to perform a new work, Love Chapter 2, and presented a major new performance of its prequel, OCD Love, specially considered for the raw concrete architecture of the Bold Tendencies site.
