One charming night + Moon + Skin + Side
Gross Dance company
Founded in 2007 by Israeli choreographer Sagi Gross, the Amsterdam based group brings together international dancers from top European ballet companies.
This assembly of artistic nomads bring meaning and substance to the companies quest of unveiling essential connections between the individual and his environment, be that cultural, spacial, or metaphysical. The four pieces use a high voltage physicality coupled with an interest in gesture to examine the performers acceptance or resistance to various encounters. By basing his work in personal themes from life, Mr. Gross escapes the banalities and generalizations oft associated with the struggles of foreigners put forward by the media and much public debate surrounding the subject. The works' identity is forged through a combination of the choreographer's inherent visual logic and the inclusion of outside influences.
Several major European cities have generated a fervent following for the program thanks to its originality and existential scope.
