The Open Square by Itzik Galili

transform



Itzik Galili is one of the most active choreographers of his generation. Ever happy to try out new things, he is forever searching for new links to different art forms and intellectual worlds in his projects. One elementary characteristic of his work is the impartiality of style, eluding all definition. In one work he utilises a theatrical approach confronted with a pure abstract physicality and in the next a cool analysis chafes at a passionat study of energies with the dancers on pointe or even on roller skates if necessary for the realisation of the idea. Recently the power of Galilis choreographies have been determined by an intense physicality. In order to provoke the necessary disposition of the dancers, direct communication is the focus of the combined creative process, centred on given topics as well as every imaginable paraphrase or paradox that might appear on their mutual path. Following his choreography “The Sofa” which has already delighted the Berlin audience and the guest appearance of “Flatland” with Dansgroep Amsterdam in May 2010, Itzik Galili will now create a full length piece for the dancers of the Staatsballett Berlin.
