Venue: College of Charleston Sottile Theatre

Duration: Approximately 1 hour

Overview

L-E-V

This piece is about love that always misses—lovers out of sync. Performed to deep, pulsing grooves created live by DJ Ori Lichtik, OCD Love explores themes of the heart through the lens of obsessive compulsion. Choreographers Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar—stars of Israel’s thriving dance scene—focused on repetition and frustration in the mesmerizing language they created. Neil Hilborn’s poem about the condition of OCD inspired this work: “I asked her out six times in thirty seconds. She said yes after the third one, but none of them felt right so I had to keep going.” This powerful contribution from the fiercely talented dancers of L-E-V digs deep in examining the particular challenges posed by OCD for life and love.

L-E-V is offering a master class on June 3 at 12:00pm. CLICK HERE for more information and tickets.
