AGADA- WORK IN PROCESS

AGADA is a full-length dance performance, choreographed by Rotem Weissman for nein9 kollektiv. The work is derived from the Hebrew song “Agada Yapanit” (Japanese Fable), written by Ehud Manor and composed by Ariel Zilber in 1972. The song describes a pointless tragedy about blind ambition precipitating absurd and unnecessary violence, with an implication that this cycle is inevitable. In the story, a frustrated hunter encounters two white swans and kills one reflexively in a show of fierce desperation and reactivity. Because he cannot eat the swan, the hunter is then confronted with the purposelessness of his act and tormented by visions of a tortured girl. In its conclusion, the fable takes a surreal turn as the hunter returns to the river to find the second swan, which kills itself before his eyes.

Contemporary dance piece that comes to challenge the human’s constant need for meaning. Through the arbitrary the work re-examines the concept of meaning and offers various possibilities to address it. The search for meaning within this piece will repeatedly encounter barriers and rebuttal until there is no choice but to devote oneself to the experience itself.

TEKES

TEKES (Ceremony in Hebrew), presents a new ritual: a new culture of dance and spirit. TEKES is a surreal ceremony, a deep prayer for nothing, an ongoing reincarnation of desires and symbolism. The made – up ceremony is a wish or a need for something to happen or to change, becoming a non-sense salvation and deliverance.

Choreography – Rotem Weissman

Have you ever been in the deep dark forests and seen one of those black strange tarns hidden there? A little bit magical, and almost frightening? All is still, and the trees are growing close and silently. Down by the water the moss is growing, and even further down are some small white flowers, leaning on slender stalks over the water. Suddenly a large elk comes through the trees towards the shore. He stops and gazes at the flowers and the dark depths of the tarn. After a few moments he continues on his path into the forest. If the trees could speak, they would tell the following tale.

A long time ago, Princess Tuvstarr…
