An ode to the sounds of the 80s with the fashion to match – get aboard the LOVETRAIN2020
LOVETRAIN2020 will call upon the iconic music of the 80s British duo Tears for Fears (Mad World, Shout, Everybody Wants to Rule The World, Change, Sowing The Seeds Of Love and many other incredible hits from that glorious decade). A choreographic ode to the sound and vibe of the 80s, as embodied in the music of Tears For Fears, with its utopic drive and epic groove.
LOVETRAIN2020 builds on the eccentric rigor that defines Emanuel Gat Dance. The company, founded in Tel Aviv and now based in Marseille, premiered LOVETRAIN2020 at Montpellier Danse festival. With adventurous costumes by Thomas Bradley and lighting by Gat himself, this performance for the dancers of the company – a story of people moving forward as they come together, drift apart, push, pull, and question – swings vigorously between stark silence and sing-alongs.
