The Language of Walls
The choreographers Guy Weizman and Roni Haver have created a piece for six female dancers about sisterhood and the female expression in dance. With an original score played live by Elad Cohen, the piece is a journey towards personal liberation. Gain context for the work with a Post-Show Talk with the artists on Friday and pre-show talks with Pillow Scholars-in-Residence 30 minutes before each performance.

About Club Guy & Roni
Roni Haver and Guy Weizman are a husband-and-wife team of choreographers in Groningen, the Netherlands, where they formed their own group, Club Guy & Roni. Devoted to their directors’ work, the group created and toured several productions, all produced by Grand Theatre Groningen. The group collaborates with permanent members including Eva Puschendorf (dancer), Yvonne Weschke (dancer), Ascon de Nijs (set design), Veerle van Overloop (dramaturgy), and Wil Frikken (lighting). Roni Haver was nominated to receive the Swan Award for best dance performance in the 2004/2005 season. Club Guy & Roni is a collaborating force that brings together dancers and other artists from around the world and is making its U.S. debut at Jacob’s Pillow. By developing an enhanced, detailed and expressive dance-theater idiom, Club Guy & Roni strive to awaken an articulated form that obliterates the need for the spoken word and capture the intangible.

Baunschweiger Zeitung, Germany:
“...marvellous applause for the catching performance of the convincing and energetic choreography of Roni Haver and Guy Weizman. The language of Walls belonged to one of the most exiting plays of the festival.”

Neue Presse, Germany:
“…the dance of the six is dark and light at the same time. Free, full with energy, but without a goal: in the perfect carried out dance is a intoxicated feeling of live well captured...”
