Choreography: Yoram Karmi | Premiered 2004.
Living in Israel means having to deal with a stressed atmosphere while trying to maintain normal life. This work is based upon the political and social climate through a personal perspective. During the show the dancers build a bunker, made out of sand bags, on stage.
‘Bunker’ explores the individual and collective sacrifices that people make In order to keep the “communal wall” standing. Private relationships and humorous moments are to be found between the walls of the bunker, as the dancers are hoping for a moment of peace in a reality of terror and fear.
