Choreography: Yoram Karmi | Premiered 2012.
“Cerberus” corresponds to stories and ideas from Greek mythology without going into details of each story. A mythical, imaginary world on the other side of the river and beyond the gate separating from the world to come, There is another life.
The story of the journey and love of Orpheus and Yorodica, the renaissance of the Muses, the labyrinth of the Minotaur and of course Cerberus himself and others permeate the parts of the work and leave a mark on the dancers and the situations they experience.
Cerberus is the three-headed dog protecting the gates of hell. He is given to see at the same time 360 degrees around which is the motivating motif of motifs that govern the work. Most of the work takes place on and around a small stage, a kind of shuttle that moves freely in the large stage space as another dancer, allowing the audience to observe movement situations and intimate moments from several angles simultaneously in a way that was previously impossible. The use of this device generates traffic in a space that is otherwise completely impossible.
As always in the dance vineyards characterized by particularly demanding physical and high level techniques.. The dancers are required to dance on the “floating” stage and the environment as they move and challenge their physical abilities so that they generate motion within motion, movement sentences in the private space while this space moves in a larger space.
In the seam between reality and fantasy, between a physical and spiritual world, the work is characterized by an almost dark and sometimes mysterious character, allowing a glimpse into the moment when a person arrives after his last journey to the world where all the laws are nullified and only memories, loves and passions exist as always under the watchful eyes of the dog with the three heads.
