Covariance

“Covariance” examines the complexity of relationships, accompanied by the music of Chopin's waltzes. This duet created by Niv Sheinfeld and Sivan Gutholtz takes a malicious pleasure in destroying any romantic notions associated with the image of the couple, the composer or even dance itself.

Both are well-known artistic figures in Israel, one a dancer and choreographer, the other an actor and director. Since 2004, Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor have been creating shows where their respective worlds connect in a fruitful dialogue. Their work has won over audiences around the world. In this work, they explore the ambivalence of a society at war, where feelings are experienced as asides and where the individual is never either completely free or completely alone.

Laor, Oren

Oren Laor studied the dramatic arts and stage direction at the University of Tel-Aviv from 1993 to 1997. During this time, he worked with important Israeli stage directors like Yvgeny Arye, Edna Shavit, Chilton Nola and Yossi Israeli.

His theatrical training led him to concentrate on creating his own works, and since 2004, he has worked with Niv Sheinfeld on dance works which enjoy a fruitful dialogue with the theatrical world. He leads workshops and runs courses for professional dancers, combining the techniques of Jersey Grotowski, Pina Bausch and Viola Spolin.

Since 2009, Oren Laor has been a member of the artistic committee of the Tmuna Theatre in Tel-Aviv.

Sheinfeld, Niv

Niv Sheinfeld is one of the most prominent personalities of Israeli dance. Initially a dancer with the Liat Dror & Nir Ben Gal Dance Company, he now works as freelance choreographer. He has choreographed his own works since 1997, in particular for the Kibbutz Dance Company and the Batsheva Ensemble.

Niv Sheinfeld also teaches dance at the Jerusalem School of Visual Theater and at the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre in Tel-Aviv. He has been directing shows with Oren Laor since 2004.

In 2012 he presented a new and contemporary version of “Two Room Apartment” with Oren Laor, a piece originally created in 1987 by Liat Dror and Nir Ben Gal. This work was also shown at the International Exposure 2012, organised by the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel-Aviv.

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine

Exposition virtuelle

La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles». Une exposition virtuelle signée par la Compagnie James Carlès Danse &Co.
