32 Minutes of Love
Suzanne Dellal, Tel Aviv
Former Batsheva dancers Ya'ara Dolev and Amit Goldberg founded their own experimental company DeDeDance few years ago, and worked as a couple on and off stage. Their relationship within the frame of family life is the source of their latest work- "32 Minutes of Love" - a video-dance creation that transmits an array of emotions, including the love and trust that shapes the quality of their movements.
Video and still photo images projected on three window-like screens help tie together the intimate lives of the dancers and the harsh reality outside.
Video by Yaron Ben Nun was projected onto the set designed by Yigal Shtayim. It proved an effective way to layer the dance and set it against various contexts.
In some ways, Dolev and Goldberg never looked better as dancers, attentive to their inner core, stripped of ego, and poised to support each other.
Their decision to restrain projection of emotions and mutual affection made their dance genuine and truly touching. This was particularly true in the first duet of the evening, choreographed for them by Yossi Tamim.
Friends are always welcome in DeDeDance performances, and this time Sahar Azimi and Michael Getman were invited.
Azimi performed his solo, "Interpretation", a piece that was tailor- made for him as a dancer. He portrayed an inner process or dialogue that deals with the dance language itself by isolating movements and reconstructing them again.
Both Azimi and Getman, who also performed his own solo, "Duomo", expressed their individuality as performers with unique and personal integrity.
