Into the Hairy is the new piece by choreographer Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar in collaboration with Koreless, musician and electronic music producer, and Maria Grazia Chiuri of Christian Dior Couture for the costumes.


The disruptive duo of Eyal & Behar are known for their unique style, where movement, music and space intersect, the dancing breaks from conventional canons, classical music is fused with underground club culture, and contemporary dance is pushed well beyond its boundaries.


“I don’t want to see the choreography,” says Eyal, “I want to see the magic. I want to feel and I want people to feel what I want to give them.”

Eyal explains how her dance is crafted from the inside out by defining her particular type of chemistry: “As far as I am concerned, mental fitness, physical commitment and dance technique are one. When you are exhausted, when your muscles feel on fire, emotion rises to the surface and it becomes impossible to pretend or construct a speech. You can only be in the present.”


A former dancer with the Batsheva Dance Company, Sharon Eyal was the muse of choreographer Ohad Naharin. A prominent figure in the formidable Gaga movement language, at Batsheva she worked as associate artistic director and later as resident choreographer. In 2013, she and her partner Gai Behar founded L-E-V (Hebrew for heart), one of the most interesting and original groups of the new Israeli generation, in Tel Aviv.


The original music for the project is by London-based Koreless, one of the most influential musicians and producers of the new generation. A mix of contemporary, ambient, garage and trance, Koreless’ music moves between dubstep and soulful electronica with a highly recognizable identity, which also gained recognition this year at Sónar in Barcelona.

“Into The Hairy”’s primal version was commissioned by LAS (Light Art Space), January 2022 at Kraftwerk Berlin
