    After 23 years with Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company, principal dancer and choreographer Sharon Eyel decided to forge her own creative path. Teaming up with Tel Aviv rave party producer Gai Behar and several Batsheva dancers the “offshoot colony” L-E-V (the Hebrew word for “heart”) was born and found a stylistic voice all its own. Technically staggering, spine-chillingly sexy, and performed to deep, pulsing grooves from techno pioneer Ori Lichtik and indie band The Knife, this is the new edge of contemporary dance.

    In Killer Pig, strangely mutated classical gestures meet elements of folkdance; like a tribal ceremony from an alien culture in which the pace and physical demands increase exponentially over an uninterrupted 45 minute span. It’s a virtuosic tour-de-force that blurs the lines between grotesquery and elegance.
