Prior to founding L-E-V in 2013 with Gai Behar, the Jerusalem-born Sharon Eyal was muse, dancer, and choreographer at Batsheva. It was Batsheva who first introduced her work to Pillow audiences with Love in 2004, and then a full evening of her work was presented here in 2011 by the Swedish company known as Carte Blanche. The performance seen here was this new company’s U.S. debut, described in The New York Times as “a Hieronymous Bosch painting of an extraterrestrial rave.” These contrasting images confirm L-E-V’s goal to represent a cross-disciplinary confluence of movement, music, lighting, fashion, art, and technology. Based in Tel Aviv while pursuing a busy international touring schedule, the company aspires to be equally at home in a techno-club or an opera house.
