"'Sally meets Stu' is not really about a Sally and a Stu, they are only there to show and tell us something about us. I love opening questions for discussion without using even one word - I believe that while meeting Sally and Stu, we agree with missing the answers - I offer us to lean back and enjoy the unpredictable." - Agami

With a cast of 9 dancers Agami brings to the stage a unique full evening piece. The combination between live narration, a tasteful sound track and the original vocabulary by Agami, completes a rich entertaining experience for the audience.

"The Dancing will knock you flat." - Seattle Weekly
"Serious and committed, Ate9 demanded to be watched." - LA Times

Danielle Agami was born in Israel in 1984. She studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance High School and was a member of the Batsheva Dance Company from 2002-2010.

After 8 years with the BatSheva Dance Company, Danielle decided to make a change and relocated to New York, where she functioned as Senior Manager of Gaga U.S.A. Since arriving in the U.S., Agami met and taught thousands of dancers. During 2011 she created original work at Rutgers University (NJ), Boston Conservatory (MA), Springboard Montreal, Cornish College for the Arts (WA) and more. After relocating to Seattle, Agami founded Ate9 as her first longitudinal project - a discovery of her artistic voice as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. In 2012 Agami created Sally meets Stu and Sheila for Ate9. During 2013, Agami presented TacTics in L.A, Shula in Israel, a new work for the BatSheva Ensemble, This Time Tomorrow for Northwest Dance Project and Invisible Cities for The Industry Opera and LA Dance Project.
