AGADA (Hebrew: tale) is derived from the Hebrew song 'Japanese legend’, written by Ehud Menor and composed by Ariel Zilber. The poem describes a futile tragedy in which the evil nature of humanity is shown and works against sublime of love. The last stanza of the poem can be interpreted as the world's response to malice, implying the indifference of the human race to the world's injustices. The score of the piece is built to destroy itself, so the way the piece ends is never predeterminant.
The creative process reveals a dialogue between one body/imagination and others through interaction, reaction and fantasy.
"The whole world is silence; the whole world is wild."
That's how the song ends.

The pop-up dance performance PRISMA by Choreographer Rotem Weissman, takes three popular children's books and brings them to life. Concrete figures, images and stories become abstract movement qualities and fantastic beings that constantly transform themselves. The stories merge into a world that is mysterious, humorous, lively, unexpected and doesn't seem to follow any logic. The piece invites you to follow your own imaginative creativity instead of searching for the one right meaning. Like a prism breaking white light into the colors of a rainbow, the piece celebrates a colorful diversity of perspectives.

The piece is a concerto for two soloists - a dancer and a drummer. focuses on two relationships at the same time: the relationship between dance and drums and the relationship between dance and conduction.
As in any concerto, the orchestra accompanies the soloists and sometimes becomes the soloist itself.
Conducted and composed by Keren Kagarlitsky
Drums - Gal Hochberg
Collaboration with Naama Manor.
4 performers: an actress, a musician, a choreographer, and a dancer, come together in moments of loss and discovery. Dancing on the delicate seam between loosing and getting lost. The creation is based on three songs written in the Villanelle structure. A structure characterized by meticulous recurrence. The confined space that the songs describe, contrasted with the urge to dive into abysses, comes together on stage into a celebratory and tantalizing autonomy. The dance is by Israeli poet Dori Manor. "One Art" by American poet Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979). "Do not go gentle into that good night" by Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (1914-1953).

The piece inspired by the prelude to “ Afternoon of a Faun". The work refers to the iconic references drawn from the poem of Stéphane Mallarmé, the music of the composer Claude Debussy, and the ballet of Nijinsky. The work celebrates nostalgia and history, instincts, sexuality, fantasy and breaks perceptions regarding the historical impact that Nijinsky's work from 1912 caused .
the nymphs and the fauns integrate into each other to celebrate passion, an imaginary landscape, an aesthetic world, a movement treasure that communicates
in spirit with the three works.

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.
