Created by world renowned dancemaker Ohad Naharin and performed in Toronto by Charlotte Ballet under the direction of the company’s new Artistic Director Alejandro Cerrudo, KAMUYOT is a contemporary experience for all ages, developed with the vocabulary of Gaga. Naharin’s iconic movement language, Gaga is both innovative and ever evolving, characterized by a deeper connection to the body, freedom found through movement and a return to the feeling of pleasure.
For this unique presentation, audience members will be invited to take a seat on the stage, surrounding the dancers, creating a shift in the dynamic between performer and audience. At the heart of the show stands a simple invitation – to dance. Breaking away from the traditional theatre hall, the show also liberates the audience. A hand’s reach from the dancers, over 50 minutes with no clear boundaries, connections are weaved between the dancers and the audience, formulating a language that seems like it has always been there. An inspiring and moving experience that allows the audience “to be with” dance and not only watch it.
Kamuyot means in Hebrew, quantities. Like if you do something ‘in Kamuyot’ it means ‘in quantities.’ And the name lived up to its intention because we have had more than 1,000 shows of this already!
