Uri Ivgi

Uri Ivgi danced for the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in Israël and Lara Barsacq and Mati Elias in Holland. He choreographed many pieces starting in Israël in 1993 and from 2000 on in Holland. His last choreography EB was made for the Scapino Ballet in collaboration with Johan Greben. He won 2 awards for the piece Longing, that was co-produced by the NND and Gallili Dance. Next to that he taught classes in Holland and Europe from 1998 up till now, for instance at the Henny Jurriëns Stichting, Fontys Dance Academy, Raz Dance Company and the Rotterdam Dance Academy. Uri Ivgi teaches a modern class based on his own dynamic language as a choreographer. His aim is to challenge the dancers to work with their extremes but to keep their awareness of ‘the free body’ his class starts with.
