Emanuel Gat Comes to New York

The Johnny-come-lately of Israeli dance, Emanuel Gat, comes to the Lincoln Center Festival this week. He was all but sure to become a conductor until, at 23, he tried out for a dance company on a whim. Now 40, he’s one of the dance world’s stars to watch, and with two new works being staged at the Lincoln Center, people will want to. One is a ballet, aptly named, “Silent Balent,” which has no music. And the other riffs off his resounding 2004 success, “Winter Voyage”; it’s titled “Winter Variations.” The male duet features Roy Assaf and Gat himself. Read my story about Gat and his New York shows in this week’s Jewish Week.
