Archive is an experimental film-performance combining several forms of new media into one; dance, video art and computer music. Archive tells the story of an elderly woman reflecting on herself, on the aging process and on life's complexity in general while raising personal repressed memories and thoughts about her long ongoing relations to her man. Archive integrates in its creation fiction and reality, existential moments and dreams, in order to examine the way reality is kept in one's archive. Archive is a unique performance introducing a dialog between the film and its dramatic dance continuation using several techniques which transfers the projected image/film from the front screening surface into the stage's space and by doing that makes it a 3D experience rather than the usual 2D view. The idea in the creation of Archive was based on early essays by philosopher/cultural critic Boris Groys and the timeless film work Le'at Yoter by Israeli film maker Abraham Hefner.
