Ramone Oller's steamy Carmen is a mix and match of modern dance and flamenco accompanied by Bizet's music and the compositions of Martirio, a contemporary Spanish composer. Oller, a Spanish choreographer, pulls the passionate gypsy Carmen into the 21st century. It is a tempestuous, erotic production in which old and new fit seamlessly together. Oller was born in 1962 and began his professional life performing Catalan flamenco before branching out to theater, classical and modern dance. In 1984 he established the Catalan Compania Metros in Barcelona and was quickly recognized as one of Spain's premier choreographers. His trademark is remaking the great classical ballets, like Carmen and Swan Lake. Oller has choreographed for most of Spain's major companies and, among the rest, is dance consultant to the Andalusian regional government. Compania Metros will showcase Carmen at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center (November 1-3) within the framework of Tel Aviv Dance 2007, at the Jerusalem Theater (November 4-5), the Haifa Auditorium (November 7-8) and at the Herzliya Performing Arts Center (November 9-10).
