Creation at Chaillot – National Theatre of Dance
Emanuel Gat has launched himself in the trend… that of a show for all ages. He is looking to bring together dancers of different urban styles and music to give a rhythm. An ode to movement to be shared as a family.
Like Christian Rizzo, José Montalvo or Carolyn Carlson – to name but a few creations for young public in Chaillot – Emanuel Gat is taking the plunge in his own way. This choreography that could be presented in a theatre room, a gymnasium or a school is based on street dances in a variety of styles and virtuosities, a bit like his Windungen adventure at the Suresnes Cités Danse festival, where 5 hip hop dancers were brought together on a score by Iannis Xenakis. For Emanuel Gat, music is essential and he places it with movement. Thanks to a video projection, music will participate in cloaking the bodies with percussions, bass and electronic waves. Emanuel Gat is constantly exploring new territories and drawing landscapes with his dance. By imagining a piece for all ages, he is uncovering his horizon just a little bit more, taking the bet of seducing beyond ages.
