American Playground

American Playground is an exuberant work which investigates multiple themes including body and culture; the individual and the group; and the tension between culture and identity.

The one-hour performance is an interactive work performed by the dance artists of Core and created with the Israeli choreographers.

Two Room Apartment

Sheinfeld and Laor take the stage to express their relationship as partners both in life and as creators.

Chosen as the “Best Performance of the Year” by the Israeli Dance Critics’ Circle for 2013, Two Room Apartment is both personal and political and examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders between life and performance.
