AGADA  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.

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.

GENNADI

Gennadi, a contemporary solo by the emerging Israeli choreographer, Rotem Weissman.
The performer Márton Gláser, explores the desire to control and direct the audience. The solo creates dark and intimate atmosphere, filled with invitations, commands, confusion, attention and sensitivity.
The audience is invited to witness a dark and unique world full of mystery and imagination, to be hypnotized by the quality of the body language and by the visceral journey of the dancer.

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.

WEED

Choreographer and dancer - Rotem Weissman 
Co- creator - Jin Lee
Vocal performer - Inbar Livne Bar - On
Weed, a contemporary dance piece, explores distortion of physical movement through the desire and love of the body to move. The audience are invited to question and bare witness to a surreal journey, and investigate the in-between moments of life and death. Weed emerges through themes of distorted, disconnected, and connected bodies, and concludes with a sense of absence and desolation. The dancers represent live presence, while the smashed body expresses the truth, the reality. Broken down humanity mixed with fondness and attachment from which we all don’t feel excluded. It can create feeling of empathy that can lead to a revelation.
