VALLEY
OMER BACKLEY-ASTRACHAN

Young Israeli choreographer Omer Backley-Astrachan’s new work Valley launches the 2018 Dance Bites season after premiering at the 2017 Summer Dance Festival in Tel Aviv.

First created as a solo in 2016 Valley has developed into an ensemble work featuring performers Omer and his Australian wife, Sharon Backley-Astrachan, Allie Graham and Matthew Mizyed. Valley is set on a frozen and desolate Arctic island where a small society of four co-exist. Solitude, vulnerability and sensuality are touchingly drawn through Omer’s choreography in this exquisite Sisyphean cycle.

“The embodiment of geographical collapse and rebirth through the human body is extraordinarily effective.” Ana Harmon

““I am Israeli and the influences of Gaga and the Israeli movement style are clearly shown in my work.” Omer Backley-Astrachan
