רְשָׁמִים עַל הַמּוֹפָע “לוֹקָאלִי” בְּבִצּוּעַ אִירִיס אֶרֶז מאת יוליה פריידין

זֶה הֲכִי לוֹקָאלִי הַדֶּרֶךְ הַזֹּאת לסוזן דָלָל.

לֹא-קַל-לִי בִּכְלָל.

וּבֶטַח גַּם לָהֶם לֹא.

וְגַם לְאִירִיס שֶׁכְּבָר מְחַכֶּה עַל הַבָּמָה,

וּתְסַפֵּר לָנוּ בַּגּוּפָה עַל הַמְּקוֹמִיּוֹת.

When Love Walked Out by Ori Lenkinski

post image

I don’t go out dancing anymore.
I used to.
There was a period when I was out dancing pretty often.
Nowadays I may find myself on a dancefloor here or there for a few minutes, at a wedding, at a festival, if the spirit truly moves me. But I don’t go out to dance.
There’s that joy, when you’re out dancing, of hearing a song that you like, singing along, seeing others belting out and watching that song charge the bodies around you.Read more

Ana Harmon on Self Ritual by Iris Erez

post image

Choreographer Iris Erez made me pause at the Israeli Museum this month when she suggested that a room full of international visitors take selfies and place their phones on the ground, out of reach. Viewers peered down to find their reflections in a mosaic of black mirrors following Iris’ 30-minute-long solo, Self Ritual, presented by Machol Shalem Dance House’s Jerusalem International Dance Week, which hosts top curators and theater programmers from around the globe for five days of dance performances around the city.

Three Perspectives on Ingiven by Noa Shavit

post image

Noa Shavit’s solo performance, Ingiven, shows a silently screaming mouth move above a sinewy body to Nick Cave’s stirring lyric, “The tree don’t care what the little bird sings.” If Shavit is that little bird, are we the tree? How many little birds fly around us that we fail to hear? There is a certain silence occupyingRead more

Dance in a Digital Age by Ana Harmon

post image

Google search “media influence on art” and you will primarily find articles on how Instagram has transformed the visual art market and how incredible it is that a smalltown girl in Idaho can virtually visit the Louvre. Few articles cover a question that I found hard to ignore over the past few days at Machol Shalem’s International Dance Week in Jerusalem: how does mass media and new technology influence our own creation processes and conceptions, specifically dance-making?

Lee Nahat Shalom on Work of Flesh by Annabelle Dvir- לי נחת שלום על עבודת בשר מאת אנאבל דביר

post image

And here, from within a medium, drowsy egg

Peeks out a work that is a true pearl.
