Best Performance of the Year 2013″Israeli Dance Critics’ Circle
Two Room Apartment brings Sheinfeld & Laor to the stage for a duet that reflects on their relationship as partners in life and as creators. The work examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders, such as between life and performance, and boundaries the individual sets for himself.
This is a new, contemporary reading of the 1987 performance created by Liat Dror and Nir Ben Gal, which is considered a milestone in independent Israeli choreography.
