L-E-V OCD Love

OCD LOVE Regina Brocke

In 2013, former Batsheva Dance Company member, associate artistic director, and house choreographer Sharon Eyal joined forces with long-time collaborator Gai Behar to create L-E-V. Together with DJ/musican Ori Lichtik, these artists have created one of the hottest dance organizations in Israel, setting work both on its own and other acclaimed international companies. L-E-V makes its Joyce debut with OCD LOVE, an evening length piece inspired by Neil Hilborn’s poem entitled OCD, an obsessive-compulsive take on love, which has been watched by over 11 million viewers since Hilborn read it at a poetry slam in 2013. A pulsating fusion of fashion, electronic music, and technology, OCD LOVE, as described by Eyal, “comes from a place that I need to take out of myself, like a dark stone I have in my chest.”
