Shaker

The newest dance-theater piece by Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak looks and feels like one of those eerily beautiful, but grey winter days, fitfully seen through whirling snow from the window of a fast moving train. Rich in poetic imagination, interspersed with unique humor and intellectual thought, SHAKER takes its inspiration from the snow-filled glass globes that fill with snow flakes when shaken. On a stage inhabited by tiny figures and maquettes, there are three small grey huts from which the dancers, clad in black or colored bodysuits, appear and disappear mysteriously. Quiet and still at the beginning, the world inside the shaker is magical and enchanted, but not necessarily happy – it has both good and evil, joy and sadness. The musical score is a collage combining great classics like Chopin, Purcell, Gavin Bryars, and Arvo Part, with Swedish folk music and songs from the fifties performed by Japanese pop artists.

Parcours

In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
