Emanuel Gat

A dancer and choreographer, Emanuel Gat founded his company in 2004. His first shows, Winter Voyage and The Rite of Spring, won a Bessie Award. In addition to the music, he also handles the lighting and scenography of all his shows. After working with the Maison de la Danse in Istres, he was an associate artist of the Festival Montpellier Danse, then of the Chaillot-Théâtre national de la danse and the scène Nationale in Albi. He is regularly invited to create shows for prestigious companies such as the Ballet of the Opéra de Paris or the Candoco Dance Company. Story Water is his first collaboration with the Frankfurt Ensemble Modern, a collective of musicians often called on to perform 20th- and 21st-century music.
