Neither Soft Nor Light

Neither Soft Nor Light | Premiere: 2015, Clipa Theater, Tel-Aviv

“My creation stems out of my biography. It may derive from my religious education or the fact that I served in the army as a combat soldier, and it may simply be that I grew up in a family of 11 children and therefore I keep choosing to stand in the opposition. I am constantly drawn to the winding paths and the unpaved roads. I turn to the dance with a prayer to heal by it, to shake out old pains, to create a new context for my being and to exercise my freedom and spread the faith”.
