A site specific dance
in a gymnastics hall
Choreography: Abigail Rubin & Yoav Bartel
Premiered: November 2011, Ironi Dalet high-school
Duration: 50 minutes
Three boys embark on a mutual campaign of oppression in a highschool gym.
A dance performance inspired by the work of Austrian film director Michael Haneke ("Funny Games", "White Ribbon", "The Piano Teacher").
The dancers, all born in the 1980s, revisit the end of the first decade of their lives. In the gym. This time, it's only them without the rest of the class, without the sponge balls and the hoops, without the smoky teacher with the fur coat. This time they will stand proud, and through abstract motion, they will melt away the memories from the gymnastic hall that seem to have frozen in time
