Let’s meet midway, in a place between a club and a theater, between Suzanne Dellal and Florentine, on the tracks. It’ll be rave-like, we will drink alcohol, and let a solo exhibition emerge. Each solo (sometimes a duet that feels like a solo) will take on the difficult task of dealing with various paradoxes forged by the ideology of our culture. Sexuality, fulfillment, fertility, honesty, future – all concepts we experience through the mediation of their contradictory and conflictual manifestations in each of our lives. This is perhaps a theatrical farewell ceremony from the event of the club, and the great pleasure of being “alone together”. At the same time, it’s an attempt to express a communal wish towards an unfamiliar party scene for the individual and his company.
We recommend coming to the whole event. There will be a possibility to enter during the event (you might need to way a little)
Alex Drool who is DJ DROOL and Yiniv Sharon who is DJ DEETROITTT are DJs from the local music and art scene who play in different spaces – bars, clubs, and spaces of art and experimental music.

The words are one layer but the meaning is in the body, in random, gesture, flow, exposure, density. It's a flurry of sincerity, a display of attention that distracts us from really listening. Duet, two solos, an unfortunate chat.

I exist in a sexual space, which is the body that I am
inside the abundance of qualities, experiences, new possibilities, and old patterns,
I try to stay without knowing a thing.
as if to keep rediscovering
I do not have a wish to reach a definite understanding
Just the desire to be, linger.
Let everything exists
till there is nothing to define.
The work ‘undefined aim‘ brings to light the powers and physical motions that live in the sexual space, out of the perspective that captures the body as a thing that sex is its central essence. Softness, freedom, extroversion, hardness, satisfaction, stiffness, femininity, masculinity, confusion, pain, control, submission, desire, search, humor, playfulness, boredom…
The piece asks to be with them all in parallel.
In spite of the incoherency, and maybe even for its sake.

Woman On The Verge Of Her Man's Breakdown
"Woman On The Verge Of Her Man's Breakdown" is a performance research which discovers the creation of a solo piece through working with multiple persons (dancers and non-dancers) on different body-specific choreographic styles inside the studio space and the dance making process. These collections of choreographic materials transform into one final piece of work exhibited by the body of the choreographer. Subject wise, the work addresses the complete beginning of a romantic relationship between woman and man, and exhibits all along the desire and never ending wish to become one being. The physical research and the theatrical gestures performed presents a mentally ill love letter for the mythical man. The work finishes when its circle of life clashes with reality. The beloved dead man holds no future, and for the first time, realized and desired for its physical being, that holds its potential for realization. The death of the mythical man, symbolizes the death of lack of function, and the ability to move onto reality as a physical adult.
