Making a memorable White Bird Uncaged debut in Fall 2015, L-E-V, which in Hebrew means “heart,” returns with a spellbinding new creation OCD Love by choreographers Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar. Matters of the heart actually form the theme of this work, also dealing with OCD, obsessive-compulsive disorder, which repeatedly poses challenges for love and for life. Six powerful dancers will move to the pulsating techno beats of DJ Ori Lichtik.
-L-E-V means “heart” in Hebrew
-In the four short years the company has existed, they have had 150 performances all over the world
-OCD Love was inspired by the poem “OCD: A Love Poem” by Neil Hilborn
-The dancers move to the techno beats of DJ Ori Lichtik
-Eyal says of her inspiration from the poem, “For me it was already choreography, or a mold you can put your inspiration in, yourself in. It is the first time that the core of the piece is shaped in my head, and so figurative, before we have even begun working”
