“Mingling with the public, Yuval and his dancers present their dance in public spaces, creating an emotional, festive shared experience in unusual cultural places.”

Yuval Pick takes his choreographic art outdoors and plays with the contours of his setting, its edges and curves, downstrokes and upstrokes, volumes and cavities; but this is less about transforming the city into a gigantic dance floor, and more about confronting the physicality of dance with social and economic realities, with the visible or invisible frontiers that divide the contemporary world. Above all, it is a matter of recreating a public space with sensitivity and kindness, a space that might foster understanding.

The permanent dancers of the CCNR will reinterpret Yuval Pick’s writing in real time. Mingling with the public, they present their dance in public spaces, creating an emotional, festive shared experience in three unusual cultural places.

“Playful, organic images from the animal, plant or mineral world, an “imaginary body” that exudes a unique atmosphere. On stage, the dancers are at one with the music. They feel it and respond to it energetically. A work of body and mind, drawing on a shared DNA passed on to them by Yuval Pick.”
