White Darkness – Making-of (2)

»Half Life« by Sharon Eyal

»Half Life« gives Semperoper audiences a first chance to acquaint themselves with the work of Israeli choreographer Sharon Eyal. A former dancer and in-house choreographer of the Batsheva Dance Company and co-founder of the ensemble L-E-V, she is one of the leading figures in contemporary dance. In her work, created in 2017 for Stockholm’s Royal Swedish Ballet, she propels the dancers to the physical limits of individual expression before allowing the ensemble to merge into a homophonic dynamic organism, moving to the beats of musician Ori Lichtik, one of the founding fathers of Israel’s techno scene.

Premiere 3. June 2023
