"In the last few years I have been developing my independent way as a choreographer and dancer. I am collaborating with musicians, visual artists, puppeteers and video artists. I have deepened my work in to the multidisciplinary world, not only as a performer but also as a creator.
My dance career was mostly with the creations of Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company and with Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak’s dance company. During this time, I created my own choreography, collaborating with various artists from different artistic fields.
I write, I sing, I sculpt and I dance, and whenever I work on a creation, all those disciplines have a crucial part in the creative process so that, eventually, they are all part of the final outcome. Working and creating in just one discipline is unsatisfactory for me. I engage myself in a multi-sensory research aiming to ignite all senses when in the process of creating.
An important part of my work and creative process is extending beyond the boundaries of the stage to alternative spaces and then back to the stage. This is an attempt to produce as many possibilities as I can from each void in order to deepen the multi-sensory experience.
It is important for me to communicate clear thoughts and images (even when using surreal ideas or movements) as metaphor and to create new logic. Developing complex characters that progress during the process is also part of my work. Characters tell a story that winds along the work. In my works there is a narrative, a plot line that eventually connects all the different disciplines I’m using – music, dance, theater and visual art. Sometimes I think of it as if creating a motion picture."
