The forthcoming July performances will see L-E-V (whose name nods to the Hebrew word for 'heart': lev) making its first appearance in the capital since its Sadler’s Wells debut with OCD Love in 2016.
OCD Love, an uninhibited piece which focused on the heart through the lens of obsessive-compulsive disorder, elicited critical and audience praise.
The next instalment from L-E-V, Love Chapter 2, builds on this success.
A provocative work for seven dancers, it is an even darker take on loneliness, despair and the search for connection. Set to deep, pulsing tribal music from Eyal’s long-time collaborator Ori Lichtik, Love Chapter 2 explores the vacant space that transpires when lovers fall out of sync.
Beginning where love breaks down, it uses powerful gestures and captivating imagery to reveal the connections between all of us – and what we are left with when they crumble.
Love Chapter 2 is the third of four presentations of Eyal’s work at Sadler’s Wells in 2018. It follows Bill, a piece for Ballet British Columbia’s evening in March and the world premiere of her work as Guest Artistic Director of NYDC’s Used To Be Blonde at Easter, and precedes Killer Pig, which will be danced by Rambert2 in November.
