Carte Blanche, Norway's national contemporary dance company, visits Dansens Hus with the acclaimed performance Corps de Walk by Sharon Eyal and Gai Bachar.Tickets
Corps de Walk is about walking, about moving, about a static state with special moments and small nuanced changes in the body. The twelve dancers are uniformed in skin-coloured suits, white hair and white contact lenses.
Sharon Eyal has collaborated with Israeli musician and DJ Ori Lichtik for several years, and his soundscape supports her strong stage language in this performance as well.
Sharon Eyal was born in Israel and has been dancing with the Batsheva Dance Company for several years. From being an outstanding dancer, she has developed into a sought-after choreographer. In recent years, her work has been performed by the Batsheva Company and Ensemble. Her breakthrough as a choreographer came with the performance Love (2003). Since 2005, Eyal has been a house choreographer in Batsheva under the direction of Ohad Naharin. In 2005 she recreated Love for Carte Blanche and in 2009 choreographed Killer Pig for the company's female dancers.
