“The energy bounces back between performer and audience … and the live, uninhibited feedback is thrilling in a way you just don’t get sitting in a theatre.”
The Guardian (UK)

“Sharon Eyal is one of the most startlingly inventive choreographers working today.”
The Guardian (UK)

Award-winning choreographer Sharon Eyal is known around the world for her intoxicating and boundary-blurring choreography. Along with her creative partner Gai Behar, an imaginative innovator of the underground club scene, the pair create captivating performances bristling with dark hedonism, futuristic androgyny, hypnotic repetition, and remarkable muscular control. They are joined by Caius Pawson of London-based multi-arts organization Young for the North American premiere of a new work that celebrates the freedom, energy, and intimacy that run through the best of club culture and modern dance.

Iconic DJ Ben UFO provides the soundtrack for this scintillating synthesis of contemporary dance, electronic music, and nightlife, playing for both the dancers during performances and the audience’s own movement throughout. Dissolving boundaries between stage, dancer, and spectator to subvert conventional notions of experiencing dance, this Armory commission serves as an open invitation to watch, to dance, to come together on the dance floor—whether you are a club kid who wants their first taste of Eyal’s visceral choreography or a dance fan wanting to experience the artistry of dancers up close in a setting like no other.
