About

פורטרט.JPG

Choreographer, performer and admirer of words, works between Israel and the Netherlands. My artistic research addresses the body as a landscape that needs to be re-discovered, by letting the somatic biography lead the journey. The aesthetic line in my choreographic work are an emphasis on movement research, minimalism and search for physical-emotional mechanism. Each work is an invitation to a mental-emotional diving environment.

In my works I explore mostly the ways in which the body and tissues store and carry the everyday experiences. In my philosophical artistic approach, the everyday reality and the body (physical and emotional) are rigid raw materials. As if we could hear the resonance during the encounter between them. And as in any frontal encounter between things it will leave marks, fractures, traumas.

These ruins are my inspirational moments.

Therefore, choreography is my laboratory in which I confront and study the body as an evolutionary process. I use live performance in order to address this study to the audience. Having the aspiration to touch, to meet and invite an honest dialogue about our private and shared biography in this complexed setting called life.
