L-E-V Dance Company: Intensive Workshop

Program archived

Program Information


Go beyond the familiar and learn the distinctive movement language of collaborators Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar and their critically acclaimed dance company L-E-V. 

Born in Jerusalem, Sharon Eyal danced with the Batsheva Dance Company where she was also House Choreographer. In 2013, she launched L-E-V with her long-time collaborator Gai Behar. Over the past five years, the company has had more than 200 performances in some of the most exclusive venues and festivals around the world.  

What does the program offer?

In Banff Centre’s intimate retreat setting, explore L-E-V repertoire and creative process with artists of the Company to experience a deeper connection to the core of the work. L-E-V’s methods enable participants to create new options in their approach to the expression of the body in dynamic and surprising ways.

Participants will be offered a complimentary ticket to L-E-V’s OCD LOVE performance if they are able to arrive in time to attend the show on June 22. 

Who should apply?

This workshop is open to professional dancers over the age of 18 with a curiosity to enrich their practice, and an interest in innovative approaches to movement and the creative process.
