Assaf, Roy

Roy Assaf was born in 1982 in the rural community of Sde Moshe in southern Israel.  Though he did not train formally, Assaf has been dancing and creating since he remembers himself.

In 2003 he started working with Emanuel Gat and danced alongside him until 2010. In 2005, Roy Assaf created his first work, « We Came for the Wings, Stayed Because We Couldn't Fly », as part of the Shades In Dance competition in Tel Aviv. The work won the Judges Choice and Audience Favorite awards. From 2006 through 2010, Assaf worked as assistant choreographer of Emanuel Gat, developing new works and re-staging existing repertoire throughout the world.

In 2010, he was appointed Artistic Associate at the NND company in Groningen, creating for them « Rock ».

In 2011 he created and danced in « Six Years Later » which was awarded first prize in choreography at the 5th International Choreography Competition in Copenhagen. The following year, he created and danced in « The Hill », which was won first prize in the 27th International Competition For Choreographers Hanover. The production prize given by the Staatstheater Tanz Braunschweig at this competition eventually culminated in the commission of "Girls & Boys", premiered in the company’s November 2014 season.

More recently, Roy’s invitation to participate in 7th edition of [re]connaissance danse contemporaine with The Hill resulted in being awarded first prize of both the jury and audience as well as a residency in the 2016/2017 season through the Maison de la Culture de Grenoble.

Assaf continued to explore the theme of gender with two distinct full length works « Girls » (2014) and « Boys » (2015), both supported by the Intima Dance Festival hosted by Tmuna Theatre in Tel Aviv.

In September 2014 he created « II Acts for the Blind » for L.A. Dance Project under the direction of Benjamin Millepied, which premiered in the Biennale de Lyon, followed in February 2015 by Ballader, a collaboration with the Swedish pianist and composer Roland Peter Pöntinen, for the Royal Swedish Ballet.

In 2016 Assaf will create new works for National Dance Company Wales and for the Batsheva Dance Company.

Western classical dance enters the modernity of the 20th century: The Ballets russes and the Ballets suédois

Parcours

If the 19th century is that of romanticism, the entry into the new century is synonymous of modernity! It was a few decades later that it would be assigned, a posteriori, the name of “neo-classical”.
