S & S
Hypnotic dance for the curious.
Dance program by Sang Jijia and Sharon Eyal.
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 As it were, a new work created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal has created a stream of critically acclaimed works for prominent dance companies over the last ten years, with Gai Behar as co-creator. Their Untitled Black (2012), created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani (an excerpt was shown at Melodifestivalen 2017) is one such example where Eyal’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. Prize-winning Sharon Eyal seamlessly integrates dance, techno and technique; sometimes explosive, sometimes sublime.
