Premiered at Festival Montpellier Danse 2017
WORKS is a program celebrating dancers. Their uniqueness, virtuosity, engagement, fearlessness, sense of responsibility and humanity. A group of 10 dancers share the stage in a series of six short works in various constellations, formats, musical environments and choreographic directions. The notion of a new redistribution of artistic responsibilities and resources is at the heart of all six new works and the program as a whole.
Story Water (2018)
Premiere at Festival d'Avignon (FR), 19 July 2018
Story Water is an intermediary. It is warm water, it is bread. It is a garden. It is the story of dancing bodies, of music being played, of color and line, and of the light that hides and shows it all. The program brings together two unique artistic troupes, The Ensemble Modern from Frankfurt and Emanuel Gat Dance. Both shares a distinct vision regarding contemporary artistic creation. It is the fruit of a dialog between artists, makers and performers who despite working in different languages and domains, share an artistic philosophy regarding the development of inclusive, more horizontal creative environments. Story Water is built around the notion of treating music and choreography as two distinctly separate entities, engaging in a real time, onstage dialog, rather than a mutual illustration.
World Premiere at Chaillot - Théâtre national de la Danse, Paris (FR), March 13th, 2019
Associate artist, Emanuel Gat has launched himself in the trend… that of a show for all ages. He is looking to bring together dancers of different urban styles and music to give a rhythm. An ode to movement to be shared as a family.
