Campaign design for "MONO" by Itamar Serussi 2012
Amsterdam based Itamar Serussi Sahar (Israël, 1978) started his dance education at the age of 15 at the Israeli Dance Academy. In 1998 he started dancing at the Batsheva Dance Company. He experiments with physical boundaries by using humour and improvisation. All his pieces are the result of the synergy between him, his surroundings and his dancers. From 2010 - 2012 he was residential choreographer at Danshuis Station Zuid (Tilburg, NL). In this capacity he created the full length work Mono. This last title was nominated for a Swan award "Best dance production - season 2011-2012" at the Nederlandse Dansdagen, Maastricht.
MONO is a sixty-minute wander through the fragmentation of one man’s thoughts. Inspired by the experience of buying a stroller for his newly-born twins, Itamar was struck by the phrase “in three clicks from mono to duo”, paralleling this with his life. As such, this work explores the diversifying and coming together of experiences, and how this coming together can create something new and exciting.
