A Documentary Film by Shelly Kling with the support of Foundation Kunstenisrael

In 2010 filmmaker Shelly Kling followed Keren Levi during the creation process of the  dance-concert "Envelopes". Besides Levi, the main characters in the film are her sister Reut, a dancer and sociology student, British musician and ex-boyfriend Tom Parkinson and his twin brother Alex, a musician and a camera man. The film documents the personal and professional relationships during a period of three months when the four were living together and working on the creation of the show. Exploring the relationship between art and life,  Kling made a 46 minutes film that talks about the language of dance as well as the language of film and which deals with themes such as home, family and identity.

Inside Envelopes offers a very personal insight into the work of choreographer Keren Levi. Without any compromises it registers the artistic process and exposes the fragile yet human aspects in the artist’s life. The film can be presented with subtitles in different languages and in combination with Envelope II The is not a boat and that is not an island (a duet from Envelopes), on its own or with other dance performances by Levi such as The Dry Piece.
