About Emanuel Gat Dance: Brilliant Corners
Brilliant Corners is the newest work from Israeli choreographer and performer Emanuel Gat. Created for ten dancers it is set to an original score composed by Gat himself. An explosion of simultaneous ideas, this new work is a choreographic playground of multiple perspectives, exposing both the fragility and burning relevance of the moment.
Brilliant Corners is the title of Jazz musician Thelonius Monk’s 1957 LP. Using the name of the album to prompt a line of thinking, Brilliant Corners is made of carefully assembled details, complex in its structure yet simple in its ability to convey the immediacy and intimacy of the human presence.
