Dance Review: Ekodoom by Rami Be'er

As the name indicates, Ekodoom is about current global issues and the glum future that awaits the society that ignores its moral responsibility to humanity and the environment.

Israel Festival The Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company Ekodoom by Rami Be'er Sherover Theater June 10 Rami Be'er, artistic director of the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company (KCDC), created Ekodoom after being invited to join the Israel Festival. Be'er produced a festive show that reveals all the traits of his trade, with an alluring amalgamation of miniature duets, trios and large group formations woven together by a masterful hand. The company looks as good as ever and works well together, following Be'er's vision with dedication. They respond well to the swift mood changes and cryptic editing of music and movement. As the name indicates, Ekodoom is about current global issues and the glum future that awaits the society that ignores its moral responsibility to humanity and the environment. Heavy issues intertwined with nostalgic bursts of happier times, give Be'er numerous opportunities to create intimate human moments amidst this apocalyptic vision. A collaboration with musician Alex Claude and impressive wardrobe designer Maor Tzabar also enhanced the production's impact. Be'er's own set design left quite a few visual images that will remain with the audience and retain their strength for some time. One outstanding image, alluding to Eve, revealed a full size orange tree on top of a box containing a female dancer in a fetal position writhing to get free. For me, this image will remain an emblem of this successful production.
