Choreographers Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar drew their inspiration for OCD Love from a poem by Neil Hilborn, who himself suffers from OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder). In the poem, Hilborn describes the blossoming and subsequent demise of his relationship. The pounding ticks and beats represent the neurotic counting of the ‘patient’, as the concentrated precision of the alienating dance performed by the L-E-V Dance Company continually falters and jolts.
