BIG MOUTH

BIG MOUTH
In collaboration with Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor

Three performers fall into a march based on Israeli folk dance steps. 
"The hymn of the heroic Israeli 7th armoured corps' brigade" and other cornerstones of the national cannon blast out into the space, demanding unity and conformity. The performers become trapped in a conflict between the insistence of the system and their inner needs.
 Deeply personal, BIG MOUTH examines the clash which erupts between the individual identity and the Israeli collective.

"The rigor of the choreographic line is impressive with its forced march based on folk dance steps, cleverly composed into a tight unisson. A mouth opens gradually with a silent agony that resembles Francis Bacon's 'cry'. Simple yet virtuoso, abstract yet significant, the piece leaves a strong impression". 
Agnes Izrine, "Danser” February 2010, France
