About Emanuel Gat Dance: Winter Variations
Winter Variations is the latest work from Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat. This stunning new piece represents the continuation of themes explored in previous work Winter Voyage, which Gat presented at Sadler’s Wells in 2008.
Set to a soundtrack ranging from Mahler to Riyad Al-Sunbati, Winter Variations is an intimate duet performed on a vast stage. Gat uses the scale to intensify the actions, relations and intentions of the choreography, allowing the space to become almost a third character in itself.
Co-created and performed with regular collaborator Roy Assaf, with whom Gat shares a rare physical telepathy, moments of dance from Winter Voyage are developed into full chapters of complex choreography and elaborated sequences of human drama.
Founded in Tel Aviv in 2004, and now based in France, Emanuel Gat Dance is renowned for creating visually alluring choreography, brimming with passion and drama.
