Mama, I'm Coming Home

Dance performance by Guy Weizman and Roni Haver

Mama, I’m Coming Home by Guy Weizman/Roni Haver confronts us through social reflection, humor and dynamic vocabulary. Raw and exciting in their approach, they explore the migrant body, soul and longing through a blend of dance, text, music and visuals. Live music performed on stage plays an important role. Mama, I’m Coming Home was created specifically for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.

“Mama, I’m Coming Home is a piece about social identity, questions about the past, about belonging. About heimweh … but to where? A life consumed by memories of the magical world you left behind. But what about taking the responsibility and maturity to accept the new reality? A life formed on the continuum between dream and reality, between west and east, between the location of the soul and the location of the body.”
Guy Weizman, choreographer

Guy Weizman and Roni Haver, the inventive duo behind Mama, I’m Coming Home, are Israeli choreographers based in the Netherlands. The recurring theme is personal liberation of the individual in different political and social contexts. The movement vocabulary is innovative and raw and the result is often an intriguing, seductive and dynamic. In 2002, they founded Club Guy & Roni.

Untitled Black

Dance performance by Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar

Untitled Black by Sharon Eyal/Gai Behar is pure, multi-layered, emotional choreography. Through its atmospheric and futuristic movement, embedded in a structure of strong composition, it takes us into a fantastic parallel universe. Live music by DJ Ori Lichtik plays an important role. Untitled Black is created specifically for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani and eight dancers from Batsheva Dance Company.

Sharon Eyal danced with Batsheva Dance Company from 1990 until 2008 and began choreographing within the framework of the company’s Batsheva Dancers Create project. She served as Associate Artistic Director of Batsheva between 2003-2004, and House Choreographer between 2005-2012. In 2009 Eyal began creating works for other dance companies around the world. Eyal is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2004 Ministry of Culture Award for young dance creators and the 2009 Landau Prize for the Performing Arts in the dance category. In 2008, she was named a Chosen Artist of the Israel Cultural Excellence Foundation.

Between 1999-2005 Gai Behar produced live music and underground artistic events, alongside techno raves. This underground line included a wandering sound system and raves in deserted buildings, basements and parking lots, in which live performances and installations by plastic artists took part. As of 2005 Gai has been collaborating with Sharon Eyal.
