Have you any idea how a choreography is born? Emanuel is only too happy to explain. Following years of army service and a late calling to dance, this Israeli choreographer moved to southern France with his wife and five children. DeSingel audiences came under his spell in February 2010 when he danced in 'Winter Variations', a touching duet with his partner in crime, Roy Assaf. His new production 'Brilliant Corners' refers to the 1957 album of the same name by Thelonious Monk. Emanuel, who is responsible for the choreography and the soundscape, was inspired by this musical classic. In his composition his main aim is to appeal to our sensory perception of motion. 'Everything is music. The timing, counterpoint, everything is physical.' Gat's choreographic works are an interplay of structure and emotion. 'Brilliant Corners' is both a complex and simple choreography: complex in its layering, simple in its comprehensibility. A distinct square of light is the epicentre of a constantly changing dance flux. It is the result of an open-minded exploration of the endless possibilities of the dancing body.
