This double bill from selected international artists is a tour-de-force of works that evoke the gravity of the body.

Shamel Pitts is a performance artist, dancer and spoken word artist from Brooklyn, who spent seven years in Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Dance Company. His multidisciplinary work, Black Velvet created together with co-performer Mirelle Martins and lighting and projection designer, Lucca del Carlo, is “a heart-piercing exploration of gender, race, identity, love and friendship” (Time Out Israel).



Vestige, on the other hand, is an intense “pure movement performance that fascinates from the beginning” (Theaterkrant, Netherlands). Created by Astrid Boons (Belgium/Netherlands), a rising choreographer who has worked with renowned dance-makers such as Ohad Naharin and Jirí Kylián, this duet is an intriguing physical journey that attempts to empty the body of its humanness. Vestige was shortlisted in the top five performances of 2017 in an Amsterdam-based daily newspaper, Het Parool.

* Limited concession tickets for students, NSFs and senior citizens. Concession tickets are not eligible for any further discount.

^ There will be a post-show dialogue after the 3 August performance.
