        Barak Marshall: www.facebook.com/barakmarshalldance Company: Les Ballets Jazz de Montreal www.bjmdanse.ca Agence Artistique: Le Trait d'Union www.le-traitdunion.com Dans cette nouvelle création taillée sur mesure pour les excellents danseurs de BJM – Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, le chorégraphe d’origine Israélo-Américaine, Barack Marshall, s’est inspiré des batailles intérieures auxquelles l’humain est confronté. « La vie est un éternel combat où l’Homme doit continuellement faire face à des conflits culturels, de genres et d’espèces » dit-il. Entre les hommes et les femmes, plus particulièrement, chacun doit faire des compromis afin de trouver l’équilibre. La pièce s’articule ainsi autour du personnage d’Harry, lequel peine à surmonter des puissances autant réelles qu’existentielles. Cette œuvre, d’une grande énergie, met en exergue un thème récurrent de l’Humanité : les conflits et la capacité de l’homme à les surpasser. Avec une trame sonore où alterneront jazz, folklore israélien et musique traditionnelle, ce nouvel opus remplit d’espoir et d’humour alternera tableaux d’ensemble, trio et duo et fera vivre des moments absolument fabuleux de danse. La pièce Harry est une œuvre dédiée à la mémoire de Marjorie et Gerald Bronfman, grands mécènes des Ballets Jazz de Montréal. Une production de BJM - Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal en coproductions avec le Centre National des arts (Ottawa), Festival Danse en PlaceS (Montauban), Joyce Theater (New York), Centre Segal des arts de la scène (Montréal). Crédits: Chorégraphie Barak Marshall Assistant du chorégraphe Inbar Nemirovsky, Osnat Kelner Musique Balkan Brass Band, Tommy Dorsey, Wayne Newton Lumières Daniel Ranger Costumes Anne-Marie Veevaete Créé en 2012 - Durée 40 mn Coproduction Festival danse en PlaceS, Montauban

          Barak Marshall: www.facebook.com/barakmarshalldance Rooster--a coproduction of the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre and the Israeli Opera--is a dance-theatre work for 12 dancers, the opera singer Lillia Gretsova, and the actress/singer Margalit Oved. Based on the Yiddish writer I. L. Peretz's short story "Bontscha the Silent", the work begins at midnight and ends at dawn and follows the dream of the main character who struggles against his own weakness as well as the jealousies and cruelties of others in his attempt to find love. Barak Marshall - Biography Born and raised in Los Angeles, Barak Marshall is the son of acclaimed dancer,choreographer and musician Margalit Oved. Since his accidental entrance into dance in 1995, Barak established himself as one of Israeli dance’s most innovative and unique voices. His first work, Aunt Leah, won first prize at the Suzanne Dellal Centre’s Shades of Dance Choreography Competition. In 1998, his work Emma Goldman’s Wedding was chosen to participate in the Bagnolet International Competition in Paris where it swept the awards—winning first prize, the Prix d’Auteur, the Bonnie Byrd Award and the ADAMI Award. His company went on to tour extensively throughout Europe, including performances at Lyon’s Bienale de la Danse, Paris’ Theatre de la Bastille and Berlin’s Haus der Kulturen der Welt. In 1999, Barak was invited by Ohad Naharin to become the Batsheva Dance Company’s first-ever house choreographer; he created several works for both the junior and senior companies before severely breaking his leg in 2001 and leaving dance completely. In 2008, Barak the Suzanne Dellal Centre invited Barak to return to Israel to created Monger—his first work in seven years. Following success of Monger, in 2009 Barak was co-commissioned by the Suzanne Dellal Centre and the Israeli Opera to create Rooster, a work for twelve dancers, an opera singer and Margalit Oved. Both Monger and Rooster works have toured throughout Israel, Europe, Asia and the United States including performances at the Montepellier Festival, Dance Umbrella UK, Jacob’s Pillow Festival, Switzerland’s STEPS Festival as well as in China, Spain, Romania, Italy, Yugoslavia, Croatia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan and South Korea. Barak’s latest work for Suzanne Dellal premiered November 2011. In 2012 Rooster was presented at Lyon’s Maison de la Danse as well as at the Holland Dance Festival. This year Barak created a new work for BODYTRAFFIC as well as new works Les Ballets Jazz du Montreal, and Cisne Negro Dance Company In Sao Paolo, Brazil. He was also commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Glorya Kaufman Presents Dance at the Music Centre to create a new work for the opening show of the season. In 2013 Barak will be creating a new work for Rambert Dance Company in London Barak is also a singer of Middle Eastern and classical music and has performed as a soloist with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Project. In 2011 his work received first prize at the Joyce Foundation’s A.W.A.R.D. Show held in Los Angeles. He is the recipient of a Creative Capital Grant for a new music production with Margalit Oved and Tamir Muskat of the Balkan Beat Box. Barak studied social theory and philosophy at Harvard University. He splits his time between Tel Aviv and Los Angeles. Selected Press Quotes and Reviews "You can tune an orchestra to his voice" -- Yo Yo Ma “Barak Marshall is a true auteur, a fully-fledged choreographer, with a powerful style and a unique voice. His work is muscular, original, fevered, carried by excellent dancers, and by an internal force and an intelligence that infuse it with eloquence that is at times arresting.” --Le Nouvel Observateur “Barak Marshall has a mean power to communicate through dance and physical theatre. His choreography is everything we wanted it to be—compelling, engaging, punchy and innovative. The sixty minutes of this performance felt more like five and left us wanting more.” --Dance Ground UK “The brutal grace of Barak Marshall.” --Le Progres “Barak Marshall’s work is an absolute stunner, not because it wanders into the wide world, but for its sheer strength, recognizable character, spontaneity and youth.” --The Jerusalem Post

              http://www.staatstheater-nuernberg.de Choreographien von Johan Inger, Ohad Naharin und Goyo Montero (Uraufführung) : Musik von Tom Waits, Dean Martin, Yma Sumac, Rolley Polley, Dick Dale, Tractor’s Revenge, Ohad Naharin, James Bowman, The Academy of Ancient Music, Marusha, Frédéric Chopin und Ludwig van Beethoven Der Schwede Johan Inger hat bereits 2012 sein Stück „Walking Mad“ mit dem Nürnberger Ballettensemble einstudiert. Nun vertraut er seine Choreographie „Rain Dogs” (entstanden 2011 für das Basel Ballett) der Compagnie von Goyo Montero an. Inspiriert von der stets theatralen Musik von Tom Waits, entwickelt sich in „Rain Dogs“ ein höchst emotionales Bühnengeschehen, zugleich voller Hintersinn, Witz und Melancholie. Ein immer dynamisches Aufeinandertreffen brüchiger Charaktere wird vorgestellt, der Tanz wird hier zur Suche nach Identität und Nähe gleichermaßen. Ohad Naharin, geboren in Israel, begann seine Tanzausbildung bei der Batsheva Dance Company in Tel Aviv und an der Julliard School of Music in New York. Nachdem er bei großen europäischen und amerikanischen Tanzcompagnien als Solist engagiert war, debütierte er 1980 als Choreograph und wurde 1990 Künstlerischer Leiter der Batsheva Dance Company. Eine enge Partnerschaft verbindet ihn mit dem Nederlands Dance Theater, dessen Gastchoreograph Naharin war. Seine Arbeiten finden sich zudem im Repertoire international renommierter Compagnien wie dem Bayerischen Staatsballett, Cullberg Ballet, dem Finnischen Nationalballett, Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève u. v. m. Ohad Naharins „Minus 16“ ist eine überaus temperamentvolle Choreographie, in der sich das gesamte Ensemble in überschäumender Bewegungsfreude und teilweise kühner Akrobatik beweisen kann. Die Musik dazu liefert ein packender Mix aus Stücken von Dean Martin, Cha-cha-cha-, Mambo-, Techno-Rhythmen und traditioneller israelischer Musik. „Minus 16“ macht sich auch Improvisation und Naharins gefeierte „Gaga“-Methode zunutze, eine einzigartige Bewegungssprache, die mit alten Gewohnheiten bricht und die Tänzer dazu herausfordert, sich in neuen Bezügen zu erfahren. Das Stück, Naharins verstorbener Frau Mari Kajiwara gewidmet, birgt unvorhersehbare Elemente und macht jede Aufführung zu einem unwiederholbaren Erlebnis. Goyo Monteros Neukreation „111“ zu Ludwig van Beethovens Klaviersonate Op. 111 ist „Tanz pur”. In äußerst reduzierter Besetzung und mit einem minimalistischen Gesamtkonzept versehen, verhandelt er darin Schlüsselmomente des Humanen: den Reifeprozess eines Menschenlebens wie auch einer Beziehung. Nachdem er für das Nürnberger Ballett in den vergangenen Spielzeiten auch opulente Handlungsballette geschaffen hat, kehrt der Ballettdirektor mit dieser Arbeit gleichsam zurück zu den Wurzeln und spürt dem Kern seiner Bewegungssprache nach. : Choreographie: Johan Inger; Goyo Montero; Ohad Naharin : Bühne: Johan Inger; Goyo Montero; Eva Adler; Ohad Naharin : Kostüme: Johan Inger; Goyo Montero; Angelo Alberto; Ohad Naharin : Dramaturgie: Sonja Westerbeck : Lichtdesign: Peter Lundin; Olaf Lundt; Goyo Montero; Avi Yona Bueno

                This year Israel's internationally acclaimed dance company Batsheva turns fifty. To celebrate its jubilee, over the next four months the company is reviving three award-winning works - ‘Mamootot’, ‘Max’, and ‘Naharin's Virus’ - choreographed by their celebrated artistic director Ohad Naharin. He talked to me about his unique dance style ‘Gaga’, about the company become a target of the international boycotting of Israel, and why relying on mirrors is a mistake.

                  “Decadance is about reconstruction: I like to take pieces or sections of existing works and rework it, reorganize it and create the possibility to look at it from a new angle. It always teaches me something new about my work and composition: it teaches me about exaggeration and under statement, it teaches me to laugh at myself, about the importance of perspective and lightness as a virtue, it teaches me about the love of dance and about paying attention to details without forgetting the whole. It is like telling only either the beginning, middle or ending of many stories and from the way it is organized, and glued together, comes its coherency." -Ohad Naharin www.cedarlakedance.com
