Sadler’s Wells Debut offers a chance to discover the work of choreographers new to the Sadler’s Wells stage.
This season sees Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, stars of Israel’s thriving dance scene, presenting the London premiere of L-E-V. UK premiere of OCD LOVE.
L-E-V Dance Company, the name of which includes the Hebrew word for heart (lev). And it is matters of the heart that form the theme of the brand new L-E-V creation “OCD Love” The work also deals with OCD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, which repeatedly poses challenges for love and for life. It’s about love that always misses, or lovers who keep missing each other. Out of sync. Like one person comes to bed and the other gets up. Like something that is full and intact, but has many holes in it. This work is about the holes.The piece is about lovers out of sync viewed through the lens of obsessive-compulsive disorder. A lot of inspiration for the work comes from the text “OCD” by Neil Hilborn.
A powerful piece from the company’s fiercely talented dancers,, performed to deep, pulsing, tribal grooves and techno beats created live by DJ Ori Lichtik.
If you get a chance to see works by this breathtaking dance company and choreographer, you’d be a fool to miss it.
