Since launching her choreographic career with Batsheva Dance Company, Sharon Eyal has become one of the most sought-after creators on the international circuit. In 2013, she founded L-E-V with Gai Behar, a multidisciplinary artist and well-known figure on the Tel-Aviv nightlife scene. In Chapter 3: The Brutal Journey of the Heart, a breathtaking work propelled by Ori Lichtik’s live soundscape, nine dancers embark on an intoxicating journey through the extreme states of the heart.

Evoking exquisitely detailed body tattoos, the costumes designed by Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri heighten the sensuality of the dance, which sustains its feverish energy right up to the climax.
