In a wood on the hills, with no internet connection, three lost characters meet in the middle of the night, their destiny is crossing. A show that tells in an engaging and human way the society of the future between technology, ecology, utopia.

NOVEMBRE is a playing field in which three dancers build a common landscape. A never ending weaving where bodies, physical games and mechanisms are entangled. NOVEMBRE draws us towards the group and collaboration, into personal and shared space, into the pleasure of playing and imagination. A unique autumn time made of inventiveness and joined forces. November is the game of being together.

The sea. What makes you think of the sound of the sea? Melville's Moby Dick. All the sea in a book. A small installation, a small performance, for a small audience. As if you were in the hold of a whaler.

Show for 22 spectators at a time (for adults and children from 6 years)
We continue, as in the other part “La morte e la fanciulla” of this Poiesis project, by translating a meticulous musical score into a staged performance in the attempt to transform music and bodies into sound to be seen. We found the right form of music in the Free Jazz style, in particular the legendary Charles Mingus album (1956): Pithecanthropus Erectus. This second part sees four male dancers on stage who give shape to the music from a masculine point of view. Through the genius of Charles Mingus and his experiment with multi-instrumentation, we try out possible multi-shapes belonging to the 21st century man.

Selection In-Box 2019
This work, inspired bythe novel by Victor Hugo, proceeds towards the drifts of humanmisery. There is no claim to narrate the events of the novel, itwould have been impossible. They have worked rather with leftovers,emotional residues, fragments left after an explosion and waiting forthe great catastrophe. Expect to have some laughs.

CABE, A VHS Elegy is a performative project in the making, the first stage of a journey that starts from everyday objects, personal and shared memories to investigate the father-daughter relationship and one's own identity. Through movement and word we question ourselves about what remains of a person's life in the objects he leaves: in this case, a father who leaves 349 videotapes to a daughter.

This is the second joint creation ofmine and Stav Marin’s in which we continue to ask questions and evaluate ourplace as women in society and as women on stage.As a continuation to the creative research in Come Closer (ourprevious joint creation), we continue to challenge the connection between bodyand voice as well as the body and the images it wears and discards.We wish toobserve the far past and far future. We wish to embrace the fear of tradition,and out of it to give birth to theunknown feminine body and movement.
We gathered here to become one body that is neither a beginning nor an end. We came here to beat, to birth a present body from bodies that we never studied and from those that we never dared to imagine. We are assembling and dismantling building blocks and live matter-moving through our Hebrew mouths and the history of our female, dancing bodies. This isn’t a beginning, it’s a quest for continuation, of a partnership and a passion to release what we’ve been taught. To shift between identities saturated in the private and representative bodies that we inhabit. In the end, everything is a pulse, beaten between us, inside of us, that would stay and perhaps, through it, we could dance the future.

An immersion in a deep perceptual state in which the body can be left free to live inthe instant. Emptiness produces the conditions for which each material form exists and the body is this material form, a living architecture that is constantly reshaped in its spatio-temporal design. The choreographic drawing composes a succession of poses and transitions in a flow of dynamically active images, not previously supposable, that escape from moment to moment, according to processes of continuous metamorphosis.

With KONTROL Mai continues her exploration of the "body in extreme states" and creates an intimate and powerful work for the dancer herself. A danced portrait that plays with the specific characteristics of her body, its power and its changes in body contours. The attempt to maintain KONTROL over one's own body is also a desperate attempt to deny the unstoppable decay of the body.

Detached from some storm, uprooted, the trees have sailed. It is the first prodigy of wood, floating. Our human species has been able to explore the planet, to know it, thanks to the wood that knows how to navigate. Otherwise we had to wait for aviation.
(Erri de Luca, writer)
From this material that contains the history of the sea, starts the desire to reveal the body in contact with it. A living material that informs the body of its history and in turn the body tells it, transforming it into a dialogue, a dynamic exchange between order and chaos.

The starting point of the project is a list, compiled since 1993 by more than 500 NGOs and activists around Europe. The list is registering deaths of refugees and migrants who attempt to reach Europe and by now listing more than 36000 people. For each incident one could find information about the date of the incident, the number of people found dead in that specific case, their names (missing in 99% cases), gender & age (often missing), the cause of death, and the organization/s that reported the incident. The list is a grandiose commemorative site, a document of death thoroughly constructed through the accumulation of data. It is an archive that attempts to shed light on a mass phenomenon of social and political importance, of a catastrophe that takes place within and on the borders of Europe. NECROPOLIS is thought as a long term creation project: Zaides and his team are thus able to develop their hybrid methodology consisting partly of documentary and investigative approach, inspired by the techniques of the expanded practice of forensics, and partly of a physical choreographic investigation.
