The Dance

Rotem Weissman and Naama Manor.

Four performers: an actress, a musician, a choreographer, and a dancer, come together in moments of loss and discovery. Dancing on the delicate seam between losing and getting lost. The creation is based on three songs written in the Villanelle structure. A structure characterized by meticulous recurrence. The confined space that the songs describe, contrasted with the urge to dive into abysses, comes together on stage into a celebratory and tempting autonomy. “The dance” by Israeli poet Dory Manor. "One Art" by American poet Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979). "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953).
