S & S
Hypnotic dance for the curious.
Dance program by Sang Jijia, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar.
S & S are two creations that weave together movement, light and sound into a distinctive and engrossing world premiere. The Tibetan-Chinese Choreographer Sang Jijia is known for his alluring creations that combine astounding physical dance with an emotional touch, often reinforced by video projections and multimedia. Sang Jijia was previously a dancer and assistant choreographer to the legendary William Forsythe. He is today a well-established and in-demand name in Asia. We are extremely proud to present him as choreographer of an entirely new work created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
The Israeli duo Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar have created a stream of critically acclaimed works for prominent dance companies over the last ten years. Their Untitled Black (2012), created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani (an excerpt was shown at Melodifestivalen 2017) is one such example where Eyal’s and Behar’s creation swept the audience away to a parallel universe – minimalist, intelligent and mysterious.
This new piece will also feature hypnotic dance with an uncompromising attitude, set to Ori Lichtik's pulsing music. The prize-winning creative duo seamlessly integrate dance, techno and technique; sometimes explosive, sometimes sublime.
