Israeli-Dutch choreographer Amos Ben-Tal creates multidisciplinary performances, events and installations and is well-known for his ‘out of the box’ approach to dance. Ben-Tal already worked with dancers from ICK and Ballet National de Marseille on one of the seven choreographies for 7EVEN in 2017. This year he works again with dancers from ICK on the performance TOO WONDERFUL as part of Shortcuts XL 2018 by KORZO in The Hague.
ICK and Amos Ben-Tal (OFFprojects) will collaborate more often in the future and share a mutual focus on movement language research.
Ben-Tal starts dancing at the age of thirteen in various schools in Israel and completes his training in 1997 at The National Ballet School in Toronto, Canada. He then moves to the Netherlands to dance at Nederlands Dans Theater for nine years. It is at NDT where he develops his passion for choreography, debuting in 2005 with the work Track, which receives rave reviews.
From 2006 onward Ben-Tal dedicates himself to creating his own work, for Korzo Productions among other things: Ziggurat (2007), We Are Not Humanity (2008), The New Work (2011) and Kill The Victor (2012). In 2012 Amos co-founds ‘OFFprojects’, a collective of four dancers who create multi-disciplinary performances, events and installations. Their first full evening production OFFline (2014) receives critical praise and tours the Netherlands as well as France, England, Czech Republic and Germany.
