Gai Behar Creator
Gai was a notorious mover and a shaker of Tel Aviv's
live music, art and nightlife scenes from 1999 till 2005.
Gai joined Sharon in co-creating Bertolini in 2006 and
has collaborated along with Ori Lichtik on the creation
of Sharon Eyal's choreographic works ever since.
Ori Lichtik Sound Artist
Ori Lichtik is a multifaceted musician, drummer and
creative DJ. Since their first collaboration on Bertolini,
Lichtik has created alongside Gai and Sharon throughout
the choreographic process, reflecting off of the dancers'
movements, and as often inspiring and prompting them
with the tone and pace of his percussive sounds and
rhythms. The compositions result in precise sets that
structure the works. Each live show is then improvised
with fresh layers of digitally manipulated effects, creating
a unique sound experience for every event.
One of the founding fathers of the techno scene in Israel,
he has created, produced and spinned musical
productions, techno raves and various other music and
performance events since 1996. During the last decade
Lichtik has taught and coordinated the DJ Department of
Muzik, college for musical productions.
