Judging from my last electricity bill, summer is here. As air conditioners began
to hum into the night and fans got moved closer and closer to their owners, the
local dance community geared up for Tel Aviv’s annual performance marathon. The
Hot Dance Festival kicked off a few days ago at the Suzanne Dellal Center and
will run throughout the steamiest of days and the most humid of
nights.Each year, Hot Dance presents a range of shows, from major
companies and independent local choreographers to guests from abroad. A
combination of premieres, new and old works take the stages of the center,
giving audiences a long list of events to choose from. Madridanza, the festival
within the Hot Dance Festival, will once again bring the best of flamenco from
near and far to the Israeli viewer in mid-July.The festival’s program
boasts an impressive list of premieres. Last week, Ruti Barnea and Maya Shtern
each presented a premiere. The Batsheva Ensemble unveiled their new
evening, a two-part program that included works by London-based choreographer
Hofesh Shechter and Los Angelesbased dancer and choreographer Daniel Agami.
Shechter contributed Uprising to the event, a powerful and celebrated work for
seven male dancers. Agami’s Shula is danced by seven female dancers and was
created especially for the ensemble. Agami and Shechter are both veterans of
Batsheva and have made names for themselves as choreographers since leaving the
company. The ensemble will continue to perform on the main stage this afternoon
and tomorrow night.Renaissance by Maya Levy and Hannan Anando Mars will
also have its premiere during the festival. The piece has raised quite a few
eyebrows of late, as the poster features six dancers in the nude. Renaissance is
indeed performed sans costumes.Talia Beck will premiere her newest work
The Botany of Desire at the end of July. Beck danced for many years with the
Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollack Dance Company and went on to become the first
choreographer invited to create work for the company. Saudade, which was
presented alongside Pinto’s Rushes, was a deeply poetic work for five women. Now
Beck has assembled a mixed cast of four dancers in what promises to be an
unforgettable performance.Ido Tadmor will use Hot Dance as an
opportunity to show his loyal fans that his new role as artistic director of The
Israeli Ballet has not forced him to hang up his spurs on stage. His mid-August
premiere will include new works choreographed and danced by the celebrated
performer/creator.Special guests from abroad include the Black Light
Theater Image of Prague. Black Light Theatre is a performance genre that has
developed rapidly in recent years, largely in the Czech Republic. Using lighting
and props to create optical illusions, this style is a tad circus, a touch
theater and a bit of dance.As part of their 20th anniversary
celebrations, the Yael Flexer Company will visit Israel with a collaborative
performance by Flexer and interactive media artist Nic Sandiland entitled
Weightless. Flexer was born and raised in Israel and received her
professional training in London. In 1993, Flexer established her troupe in
England and has since maintained a presence in the UK and Europe.New
York-based Israeli choreographer Dana Katz returns to Tel Aviv with Prospect
Minds. Katz is currently working towards a master’s degree in
choreography at New York University. Her mid- August performance will mark her
first engagement in Israel since she relocated to the Big Apple.And no
Hot Dance Festival would be complete without performances by the Kamea Dance
Company, the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, the Batsheva Dance Company and
the Kolben Dance Company.The Hot Dance Festival will run until the end
of August. For more information about Hot Dance, visit www.suzannedellal.org.il.
