O Balcao de Amor

O Balcao de Amor

// Itzik Galili

After a trip to Cuba, Itzik Galili was inspired by its timeless music to create an energetic piece. It is a ballet Galili infuses with myriad comedic sparks, looseness, sex and lovely absurdity.

“Sometimes, as grown-ups, we encounter seemingly trivial details that bring us back to our youth and its hopes.

Pérez Prado’s music, with its lightness, gives me a deep sense of simple joy. It makes me happy to see how the young generation relates to it, and to see the different layers of feelings it awakens in them: joy, laughs, but also a profound smile… ”

“Between fantasy and reality, desire to sanity.
A borderline as a walking rope, worshipping a dream.
At the end of a day, trading happiness with pain
Located at the end of each breath
Dancing demon soul that flows into the horizon
On the brink of the abyss.”

– Itzik Galili
