GOLD is the 2015 version of THE GOLDLANDBERGS premiered in 2013 for Montepllier Danse. The piece uses choreography as a method of organizing and articulating thought through the exploration of the complex and dynamic webs of human relations. It looks at people, observes their conduct and behavior, attempting to unveil their motives and the forces which rule them.

The play is written on the edge of the seat, on a shiver, with exquisite delicacy. Precise and perfectly performed, Emanuel Gat masters his very personal art of choreography like a science whose boundaries he keeps pushing further and further beyond to translate ever-subtler meditations.
