Sacre / Tres duets
A free and challenging interpretation of La consagració de la primavera and a masterpiece of Igor Stravinsky, a complex dramatic and choreographic play. Sacre dismantles the movements of the Cuban salsa and reconstructs them into a piece for five dancers, two women and three men, merged into a rhythmic, warm and evocative dance. In this Sacre by Emanuel Gat - a review of the homonymous piece that Gat himself created in 2004 - there is no sacrifice, as it happened to Stravinsky's original ballet, but an air of ceremony, of ritual, absolutely captivating.
It completes the double program of Emanuel Gat Dance three duets, two of which belong to the company’s repertoire and, the third is of new creation.
Trained in sports and music, Emanuel Gat first got in touched with the dance at 23 years old, in a workshop by the israeli choreographer Nir Ben Gal. Two years later, he started his own career as an independent choreographer; in 2004 he founded the company Emanuel Gat Dance in Tel-Aviv. His choreographic language, sensitive and abstract, is mainly based on music.
