An Amsterdam resident, Itamar Serussi Sahar (Israel, 1978) began his dance training at the age of fifteen at the Israel Arts High School and School of Bat-Dor Dance Company. In 1998 he became a part of the Batsheva Dance Company. From 2006 he has been working on developing his own personal style as well as experimenting with physical boundaries through humour and improvisation, thus trying to go beyond traditional dance. His work is playful, light and elegant and his choreographies are the result of a synergy with what is around him and his dancers. Between 2010 and 2012 he was the resident choreographer for Danshuis Station Zuid (Tilburg, NL). As such, he created a number of short works, such as “Phenomena”, “Undo”, “Ferrum”, “Lust” and the long performance “Mono”. The latter was nominated for Swan Award‘s “Best dance production – season 2011-2012″ in Nederlandse Dansdagen, Maastricht. Itamar’s choreographies are striking both for the audience and for the performers’ and are regularly performed all across Europe (Czech Republic, France, Slovenia). Itamar also creates for dance companies in the U.K., Austria, United States, France, Denmark and Belgium and, since the summer of 2014, he has also been the resident choreographer for the Scapino Ballet (Rotterdam, NL).
