LECHET is the third creation in the series “Three suggestions for dealing with time” by choreographer Mor Shani for Inbal Dance Theater. The piece was created in the midst of the global covid-19 crisis as an exercise in Hysterical Realism. Frantic and overwhelmingly passionate, the performers pursue vitality and progression at all costs in a one-hour desperate celebration of their own existence.
This video is an excerpt of a full evening-length work.
Mor Shani started his professional career at Bat-Dor dance company in Tel Aviv, Israel. He studied at Artez dance academy in Arnhem, and at Dasarts Amsterdam, the Netherlands. After his studies Shani worked as an artist in residence at Dansateliers Rotterdam and continued as an independent maker at ICK Amsterdam. His works were presented across Europe, and in Canada and the United States, and were nominated for several awards as the Dutch Zwan award next to choreographers Jiri Kylian and Alain Platel. His project Love-ism was chosen by the European Dancehouse Network as one of 25 best practices together with projects by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker and Jérôme Bel. Since his return to Israel in 2016, Shani has been the house choreographer of Inbal Dance Theater.
