Fanatics

They are the ultimate fans. They will stop at nothing. They will give themselves to you completely, whether you return their feelings or not. Their very existence is pathetic and limitless, stemming from dependence. They want to connect, to feel, to thrill, come near, they want to be chosen.

Who are groupies really? What makes them lose control? How do they create icons, granting them validation and power?

Through physical and mental mechanisms of rituals, performers Rotem Volk and Michal Herman create a magical, enigmatic Sisyphean cycle of pleasure, torture and emptiness on stage.

Choreography and performance: Michal Herman and Rotem Volk | Artistic guidance: Renana Raz and Ofer Amram | Sound editing: Rotem Volk | Graphic design: Doron Flamm |

 

The Suit

On Valentine's Day, 1962, Jackie Kennedy invited television cameras into the White House to what would become an iconic tour of the extensive renovation she championed. In doing so, she reshaped the world's image of the First Lady and of ladies altogether.

In Tel Aviv, 2019, armed with a pink suit (not a Chanel), Ori Lenkinski summons Kennedy's energy to take the audience on a tour of the here and now.

Concept, Choreography and Performance: Ori Lenkinski | Artistic guidance: Rachel Erdos, Renana Raz, Ofer Amram | Music: Chubby Checker, Pablo Casals | Premiere: Intimadance 2019, Tmuna Theater
