Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,
We herewith announce the world premiere of HOMELAND? by the GöteborgsOperans Danskompani for 13 October. The company changed their name recently: the new name GöteborgsOperans Danskompani makes their increasing contemporary repertoire evident. Under the Artistic Direction of Adolphe Binder the season 2012/2013 is dedicated to the theme Homeland & Risk Zones.
Untitled Black by Sharon Eyal/Gai Behar, DJ Ori Lichtik
Mama, I’m Coming Home by Guy Weizman/Roni Haver, Live Band
October: 13, 17, 20, 21, 25, 28, 31 November: 3, 11, 16
Irony, glamour, austerity and beauty. Belonging and exclusion. Alienation and identity. This permeates the fall's first dance premiere where two international and highly creative teams approach the season’s theme Homeland & Risk Zones from widely differing directions. Both pieces have been created specifically for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani.
Sharon Eyal is a dance artist with a unique voice: sensual, dramatic, precise and with a strong sense of form and composition. Untitled Black is created in collaboration with Gai Behar and a close-knit team. DJ Ori Lichtik performs live on stage, and from Batsheva Dance Company, where Eyal was house choreographer, we present eight dancers in residence. These dancers will form the brand new Sharon Eyal Project, for which the HOMELAND? production is the kick-off.
Mama, I’m Coming Home
Guy Weizman and Roni Haver, the inventive duo behind Mama, I’m Coming Home, are known to create exciting, raw, yet poetic pieces, which touch the audience. In this piece, they portray the immigrant's sense of carrying two worlds within. Creating a "home" in this situation requires brutish courage. Mama, I’m Coming Home is a piece about social identity that asks questions about the past and about belonging.
