Core Dance presents Two Room Apartment and American Playground
Artistic Director Sue Schroeder continues her collaboration with internationally renowned Israeli choreographers Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor with the presentation of two dance theater works
“Two Room Apartment” brings Sheinfeld and Laor to the stage for a duet that reflects on their relationship as partners in life and as creators. Both personal and political, the work examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders between life and performance, and the boundaries that the individual sets for oneself. This work was chosen as the Best Performance of the Year by the Israeli Dance Critics’ Circle in 2013.
“American Playground,” an excerpt of which was seen at Miller Outdoor Theatre in 2016 performed by Core Performance Company, investigates multiple themes including “body as resistance,” personal authenticity, and the dialogue between public and private spaces. The work will make its international premiere in Tel Aviv, Israel, this fall.
On February 15, the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest will host a reception with light refreshments at 7 pm prior to the performance. Consul General of Israel to the Southwest, Gilad Katz, will make welcoming remarks, and Idan Schwartz, Cultural Attache of the Consulate General of Israel to the Southwest, and Sue Schroeder, Artistic Director of Core Dance, will talk about the collaboration with the Israeli choreographers.
