Mono

For “mono”, a piece presented within the European network Modul-Dance, the Israeli choreographer found humour in an advertising slogan for a double stroller: “In just three clicks, go from mono to duo”.

To the electronic music, repetitive jungle of Richard van Kruysdijk, six dancers express the multitude of possible combinations in the adventure of daily life.

Pushing his dancers to the limits of their physical capabilities, Itamar Serussi uses improvisations on different processes of composition in order to push the boundaries of dance and to create new emotions.

Serussi, Itamar

Amsterdam based Itamar  Serussi Sahar (Israël, 1978) started his dance education at the age of  15 at the Israeli Dance Academy. In 1998 he started dancing at the  Batsheva Dance Company.

Since 2006, he  is developing his own personal style. He experiments with physical  boundaries by using humour and improvisation. Trying to break through  traditional dance. His work is playful, light and elegant. All his  pieces are the result of the synergy between him, his surroundings and  his dancers.

From 2010 - 2012 he was residential choreographer at Danshuis Station  Zuid (Tilburg, NL). In this capacity he created several short  productions; Phenomena, Undo, Ferrum, Lust and the full length work  Mono. This last title was nominated for a Swan award  "Best dance  production - season 2011-2012" at the Nederlandse Dansdagen, Maastricht.
The choreographies speak strongly to both audiences and performers and  are performed widely in Europe (Czech Republic, France, Slovenia).

Itamar also  creates works for companies in England, Austria, USA ,France, Denmark,   Belgium and Italy and since the summer of 2014 he became residential  choreographer for Scapino Ballet (Rotterdam , NL)
