The creation is about love, about love that always misses, or lovers who keep missing each other. Out of sync. Like one person comes to bed and the other gets up. Like something that is full and intact, but has many holes init. This work is about the holes.
"I see everything in the piece very dark, and in shadows, you and your shadow dancing. A lot of inspiration for the work comes from the text "OCD" by Neil Hilborn. This text is strong for me because I feel it reflects me so much. I couldn't stop reading it. For me it was already choreography, or a mold you can put your inspiration in, yourself in.
It is the first time that the core of the piece is shaped in my head, and so figurative, before we have even begun working. I know the way it feels and smells. Like the end of the world, without mercy.
A smell of flowers, but very dark. Like falling into a hole and not coming back. A lot of noise, but desperation for quiet. It's not coming from a place that I want to make something sad, but something that I need to take out of myself, like a dark stone I have in my chest" Sharon Eyal.

She danced with the Batsheva Dance Company between 1990- 2008 and started choreographing within the framework of the company’s Batsheva Dancers Create project.
