Itamar Serussi - Mono
Itamar Serussi has been artist in residence at Danshuis Station Zuid since 2010. In 1996 he started dancing with the Batsheva Dance Company, where he developed his own, explicit style. He experiments with physical boundaries by using humour and improvisation to break through traditional dance.
Mono is the first full-length work by this exceedingly talented young Israeli choreographer, who is now based in the Netherlands. The inspiration for Mono came to Itamar Serussi while buying a pram for his newly born twins. The advertising slogan ‘In three clicks from mono to duo’ made him realise that life too could just be about that. In effect, Mono is about directions, decisions and happenings coming together and thus creating something new.
