Gal Fefferman was born in Israel and studied contemporary dance at Frankfurt’s University for Music and the Performing Arts. She has been working as a choreographer since 2017 with people including the music director Nicolai Bernstein and Frankfurt’s Chamber Philharmonic; their joint project about Gershwin’s An American in Paris was seen on stage for the first time at the Alte Oper in Frankfurt in 2021. She and her collective GOSSIPS brought ACHSCHAV into being – an evening of dance – in Frankfurt’s LAB in 2022. She’s currently working on HUNGRY, a documentary dance film project which can be seen for the first time in studioNAXOS in late 2022, where her 2021 dance film HINENI was premiered, which led to her being invited to Hessen’s 2021 Theater Tagen (days - a big honour) and the 2022 MADE Festival. She works regularly as a dancer and performer with the Frankfurt company Dorfproduct, and on various opera productions, with people including Claus Guth and Ramses Sigl (most recently at the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence). She has danced in many productions at Oper Frankfurt over the years, including Der Rosenkavalier, Les Troyens, Anna Toll, The Merry Widow and Dialogue des Carmelites and played a young woman in From the House of the Dead. She's back this season to choreograph the new production of Tchaikovsky's Die Zauberin / The Sorceress and dance in the new Elektra.
