Emanuel Gat is one of the contemporary dance scene’s most sought-after protagonists. With the company he founded in 2004, the Israeli choreographer is a regular guest at leading international festivals. His latest production for ten dancers ›Brilliant Corners‹, which premiered in June this year at the Venice Biennale, functions as a seismograph of choreographic activity within a clearly determined square of light. Set to an original score by Gat, the performance flows in endless rhythmic and melodic layers. While tracking vanishing structures and multiple perspectives, it exposes both the fragility of the choreographic moment and its burning relevancy.
