1. My home town celebrated it's 25 years and involved me in creating a video piece. This was a small but very exciting projection on a house in Nofit, and not just a house, also the home of one of my best friends, a very talented dancer, Shi Pratt. Together we combined her beautiful dance with video-mapping animations creating this subtle video-dance projection-mapping.

    Thanks to Ganit for organizing the event, to Yaacov Gal for the constructions, to Mamash productions for lending their studio, to the Pratt family for lending the house, to Shi for performing, to Eitam for the design and to Rimoninio ltd. for their projectors.
    Also thanks to Telenoika for their workshop in Bracelona, and to Joanie Lamercier for his fantastic patch I used in this projection.

    About the piece:

    "We Bleed the Same Color" sets the viewer wandering between references to body, relationships, power, and the beauty of having a spiritual or physical companion. Two women move freely about a masculine space, playing with the ever morphing relationships between them. They continuously search for meaning and belonging, looking for symmetry and attachment in the other, craving absolute trust in the way only innocents can. The need for trust is expressed through a series of images from the world of bondage, juxtaposed by poetic images of intertwined bodies, into narratives of relational needs and desires.
    The lights lure the audience to get involved in the spectacle, in turn exposing the performance space with rock n roll flood lights and highlighting the twin dancers and their sensational attachment with moods of 17th century paintings.
    In images ranging from the recurring "The Pietà" to memories of Bertolucci's "Last Tango in Paris" and Jim Jarmusch’s "Only Lovers left Alive", the dancers drift in and out of synchronicity whilst searching for connection in a series of images of inherent familiarity and attempted adaption.
    The title, the second skin costumes, the twin women and their sensational attachment, the raw but delicate lighting, the vivid soundscape; all entice the audience to engage in the performance and create their own personal interpretations of the physical architecture of the theatre and the psychological and emotional architecture of the piece.
