Since 1984, Shades of Dance has showcased young choreographers, many of whom have gone on to make national and international names for themselves. These include Liat Dror and Nir Ben-Gal, Vertigo and Barak Marshall, whose works will be presented at Then and Today, a gala opening night on March 18 celebrating the Suzanne Dellal Dance Center, which marks its 20th anniversary this year.
Dror and Ben-Gal will dance the iconic Two Room Flat (1986) and their company will perform scenes from Earth (2008). The duet Vertigo (1992) gave its name to the company that will dance White Noise, while Marshall presents both Aunt Leah (1995) and scenes from Monger (2008). Shades of Dance 2009 at Suzanne Dellal runs from March 18-20 and presents 10 works chosen from among 85 submissions.
Each work will be presented twice, and three or four of them will be presented every evening in the approximately 40-minute program.
