«Introdans»
Considered one of Europe’s leading touring companies, Introdans works in a neo-classical ballet idiom that will definitely delight both ballet and contemporary dance lovers alike. The company founded in 1971 by Hans Focking and Ton Wiggers, today it consists of three pillars: the main Introdans ensemble, Introdans Ensemble for Youth and the Introdans Interaction education department. Introdans believes that the language of dance is so universal that it can bring together and move entire generations.
Martha Graham Dance Company
The Martha Graham Dance Company, founded in 1926 by dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, continues to develop her heritage: the Company looks for new interpretations for classical works of the choreographer, contemporary artists and her followers. In the new era the Company worked with Nacho Duato and Mats Ek. A former chief dance critic of The New York Times, Anna Kisselgoff, once acknowledged the Company as «one of the great companies of the world».
Itzik Galili
Itzik Galili began as a dancer with the Bat-Dor Dance Company and joined the Batsheva Company two years later. In 1990 Itzik embarked into a professional art world with the work Double Time. Since then, he has been considered «a master of space and timing of bodies.» (Michelle Mann, Dance Europe). Lighting plays an integral role in his work. «Lighting is poetry. It can define personalities, and distinguish coldness and warmth.
