Created in 2015 as part of Batsheva Ensemble's Dancers Create and performed in Suzan Dallal Teather in Tel Aviv Israel. "Hirhur Amok" (deep thought in Hebrew) is a group piece exploring the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything. Inspired by the works of Douglas Adams, the group recorded many improvised conversations being used as the score. The movement is also mostly improvised and expresses a strange hierarchy between the dancers.
Created in 2014 as part of Batsheva Ensemble's Dancers Create and performed in Suzan Dallal Teather in Tel Aviv Israel. "Nitzanim" (buds in Hebrew) is a monologue resembling a shopping network special, trying to sell the audience a plant that will never bloom. The presenter goes on about the reasons such a product is desirable while a dancer does yoga upstage. The piece explores the nature of expectation in a tragic humor kind of way.
