Israeli choreographer Sharon Fridman and Vertigo – Power of Balance Integrated Dance Center collaborate in a new creation performed by dancers with mixed abilities.

Breaking away from the aids that serve some of the performers in everyday life and focusing on each participant’s physical abilities, a living organism takes shape in the encounter between unique bodies. Looking for the possible choreographies entailed in this encounter, Fridman challenges taboos of looking at the different body, tracing the delicate physical systems that transform involuntary movement into a deliberate one and questioning the perception of what is considered natural or abnormal.

A touching work that puts different bodies center stage, weaving a beautiful and delicate tapestry that re-examines social conventions and truisms surrounding the dancing body.
