Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar have collaborated for the past decade. Eyal was a dancer with Batsheva Dance Company from 1990 until 2008, served as Associate Artistic Director between 2003 and 2004, and assumed the role of House Choreographer in 2005. Behar was a producer of live music, techno raves, and underground art events in Tel Aviv before joining forces with Eyal. Over the past 10 years, the pair has created works for Batsheva, and began choreographing around the world for companies such as Carte Blanche, the Norwegian National Company of Contemporary Dance, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and Oldenburgisches Staatstheater. This past year, they formed their own company, L.E.V., with a creative force of dancers, designers, and their composer and collaborator Ori Lichtik, who has created music as well as DJs live for most of their work. L.E.V. had its premier in the fall of 2012 at the Gothenburg Opera, and will have its United States debut this summer at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.
