Transposition #2

The musical term transposition refers to the process, or operation, of moving a collection of notes up or down in pitch by a constant interval, while maintaining the same tonal and rhythmical structures.

A free take on that creative procedure. These creations for the CCN - Ballet de Lorraine, offer two distinct observations on human nature through this process of transposition. Both pieces are playful experimentations with shifting ideas and contents from their original environment into new choreographic modes. The alterations which certain data and systems undergo as a result of that transposition, becomes a way of enhancing visibility while looking into questions relating to people and society.

Gat, Emanuel

Emanuel Gat was born in Israel in 1969. He started dancing at the age of 23 during a workshop led by Israeli choreographer Nir Ben Gal. Few months later he joined the Liat Dror Nir Ben Gal Company with whom he toured internationally. He started working as an independent choreographer in 1994.

Ten years later, Emanuel founded his company Emanuel Gat Dance at the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv, with whom he has created several pieces of which « Winter Voyage » (2004) and « The Rite of Spring » (2004) won a Bessy Award; « K626 » in 2006 and « 3for2007 » in 2007, before choosing to settle in France, at the Maison Intercommunale de la Danse in Istres. « Silent Ballet » (2008) was the first piece created in France, followed by « Winter variations » in 2009 and « Brilliant Corners » in 2011.

In 2013, Emanuel Gat was associated artist to the Montpellier Danse Festival for which the company developed the project « Up Close Up » proposing two new works : « The Goldlandbergs » and « Corner Etudes », a photographic installation « It’s people, how abstract can it get ? » and a choreographic event « Danses de Cour ».
In 2014 Emanuel Gat creates "Plage Romantique", a one hour work for 9 dancers, in the Agora courtyard during the 34th Festival Montpellier Danse.

Emanuel is associated choreographer to Montpellier Danse Festival for the seasons 16-18, and has presented « Sunny », a choreography for 10 dancers, as his first piece within this association at the festival during summer 2016. The work is a collaboration with musician Awir Leon, former dancer with the company, who is playing live for this piece. Emanuel is currently preparing his second project as part of his residency at Montpellier Danse, which will include two productions; a unique collaboration with the Ballet de l'Opera de Lyon, « Tenworks » (for Jean-Paul), a program of ten short new pieces mixing dancers from both companies, and « Duos », a série of duets presented at different public locations around the city of Montpellier during the festival.

Emanuel is regularly invited to set his work and create new choreographies for dance companies around the world including: The Paris Opera Ballet, Sydney Dance Company, Tanztheater Bremen, Le Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève, Ballet de Marseille, The Royal Swedish Ballet, Polish National Ballet, Ballet de Lorraine, Cedar Lake, Ballet British Colombia and Ballet de l'Opera de Lyon among others.
