Kabisa Makarova, a new full-length work for Batsheva Dance by Sharon Eyal, will have its world premiere on February 25 at the Suzanne Dellal Dance Center in Tel Aviv. In Swahili, "kabisa" means whole or harmonious. Makarova refers to Russian prima ballerina Natalia Makarova (b. 1940), an absolute mistress of the great classical tradition that Eyal admires and from whom she draws some of her inspiration. In the work, Eyal seeks to confront "the whole" with its mutations and shatter precise esthetics. Onstage, ordered neoclassical movement explodes into frantic bits and bites. The musical soundtrack that Eyal compiled with DJ Uri Lichtik is drawn from African music and Eighties pop and rock music. Eyal's non-stop, sensual Bertolina rocked the dance world when it premiered some two years ago and has since been acclaimed abroad. Eyal herself is inhouse-choreographer at Batsheva with whom she has danced for 18 years.
