2017

Golden Ratio

Choreography: Yoram Karmi | Premiered 2017.
The “Golden Ratio” dance piece places a mirror on Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic masterpiece – “The Vitruvian Man”, and invites the viewer to deal with the perfect and flawed man and his belief system in all its external and mainly internal aspects. Through the universal image of the perfect proportion, the work offers a look at the person’s observation of himself and his private and collective beliefs, and the ceaseless preoccupation with the unattainable and perfection.

2012

CERBERUS

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.

2010

Particles Accelerator

Choreography: Yoram Karmi | Premiered 2010.
Yoram Karmi’s dance piece –” Particles Accelerator” refers to a scientific-technological reality, which is expressed from the first moment in which a sanitary act in a white and sealed garment (Karmi himself, as will be revealed later) cleans the stage with a vacuum cleaner, ensuring the sterility of the laboratory. The long suction pipe writhes like a hot red snake. This red will be an interesting visual motif in a work whose basic shades are gray – the color of the uniform for all designed by Lior Sabra with the help of Shira Raphael – and the blackness of the stage, which is open in all its breadth and depth. The dresses have thin red stripes, and during the work the dancers wear red “gas masks” that later turn into tiny hats. In a central part of the work, stormy and thrilling, to the sound of the Kirya from Bach’s Mass at B flat, the stage and the dancers are bathed in red light as fire flames threaten a flock of birds of prey. This piece is one of the highlights of Karmi’s choreography, the excellent collection of lighting designed by Jacob Barassi, and the surprising climax of the rich musical soundtrack by Didi Erez.
