Phoenix Returns to The Linbury Studio Theatre

12 Oct 2015

Phoenix Dance Theatre proudly presents its London 2015 season at the Royal Opera House‘s Linbury Studio Theatre from Wednesday 11 November to Saturday 14 November, featuring the world première of Itzik Galili’s new version of Until.With/Out.Enough. Alongside this will feature Sharon Watson‘s TearFall, inspired by both the science and emotions behind tears and Bloom by New Adventures Choreographer Award-winner Caroline Finn, which explores the dark and comic moments of life through her playful, quirky and highly engaging choreographic style.

Until.With/Out.Enough was originally created by prominent Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili way back in 1997. His new version of Until.With/Out.Enough has been created for seven dancers with immersive music by Henryk Górecki and is a unique Phoenix Dance Theatre and Royal Ballet co-commission, receiving its world première on Wednesday 11 November.

Speaking about the creation of Until.With/Out.Enough Itzik Galili said ‘What I have made for Phoenix is an old piece that I have adapted and given a facelift, with new costumes and lighting. I created it fairly early in my career, but I don’t like to leave pieces, because as we change our pieces also change as we develop. We see this revision process in writing all the time. Essentially I am recreating it based on the abilities of the dancers, who naturally influence the work, because it is important that they own what they do. The company dancers currently look very good. Until. With/Without.Enough will be an emotional journey for the viewer, essentially abstract but with intimacy and tension. A good work should move you emotionally and intellectually and I think it works with this ballet.’
