This piece is an abstract depict of two men and their relationship. The individual dilemma comes up even though there is an invisible magical emotional connection between them. They look for something similar and try to get over each other. Somehow, they learn to stay bonded through their differences and conflicts. Through the abstract movements this piece shows their struggle, ups and downs, competitiveness, conflicts of life, togetherness, connection, success, failure, support, control, fight, etc.

Family Honour is a concept that follows a young girl trapped in her mental state, confronting her past sin against tradition. Abandoned by her father she seeks solace from entities that resemble her father. We look at the relationship between the characters within the piece and focus on the transition in memories by challenging the concept of religion versus business, is it separate? And how does this effect a father and daughter’s relationship.

This solo is inspired by Thomas Dylan’s famous poem “Do not go gentle into that good night” written in 1951: “Old age should burn and rave at close of day; rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

“I try to shed what I’ve learned, I try to forget the way I was taught to remember. And scrape off the ink they painted my senses with. Unpack my true emotions. Unwrap myself to be me, a human animal created by Nature” Fernando Pessoa


Roni Rotem


Tel Aviv, Israel

Michal Rotman, Noam Deutsch, Roni Rotem


This work, a trio for three female dancers, explores the stereotypes of man in the modern world and how he is perceived when he deviates from what is expected –when he breaks down, shows his feelings or expresses weakness–. In MEN TO BE, Roni and her dancers try to inhabit the male body, to explore the physicality, gestures, posture, gait and habits of men.

This solo conceptually derives from Zimbabwe’s Chinhoyi Caves. Physical projection/execution through created and structured improvised movements which influence physical distortion as form according to existing created environment. Audio from recorded soundtrack and spoken text to convey atmospheric artistic intentions. These are all fuss to one artistic meaning in communication with a new audience and to depict oneself aesthetic development. This work collaborates with young local artists to develop their artistic skills by engaging in making of costume designing, music composition, art administration, marketing and directing.

During the performance I am trying to play with pure simple things, like the movement of an infant or the growth of plants. In the middle part, I work with the idea of the growth of a child. In this part I play with the atmosphere of childhood. The third part is about the human sexes, roles and races. The forth and the final part is about the human action and power – this power I used to go into a kind of fairity character.

Omri Arviv, Thibaut Eiferman, Minouche Van de Ven


H H H stands for Hand, Heart and Head. Without these we are nothing but skin, flesh, and bones. If we let it, the world will shape us how it wants. In order to stay true to ourselves, we honor our efforts to resist. It was developed at the Batsheva Dance Company annual choreographic workshop.


Mucha Muchacha


Madrid, Spain

Ana Botía, Marta Mármol, Belén Martí Lluch, Marina de Remedios


“I am a woman. And a warm warmth shelters me when the world hits me. It is the warmth of the other women, of those who made of life this sensitive, fighter corner, with soft skin and tender warrior heart” Alejandra Pizarnik

Mucha Muchacha works from contemporary dance and Spanish dance, and pushes them into a critical state due to their capacity for transformation and dialogue with other arts. VOLUME 1 is a declaration of intent around movement, community, femininity and ritual.

Marina Miguelez


Inspired on Marco Antonio’s monologue, by William Shakespeare. With a physical theatre approach, it digs into the origin of the most pure feeling of revenge after a great loss. A merely human emotion that can corrupt anything, creating a great and inevitable transformation. This work is the seed of the proposal accepted by the Residencias Coreográficas programme of the CND, where it is currently being developed towards the creation of a complete work: VERSUS, of 50 min, performed together with Raquel Salamanca Santaella.
