Avshalom Pollak and Inbal Pinto call their new dance composition "a wet, murky, sensual piece with extraordinary images and music that aspire to a rosy future." The piece is Trout, which will have its local premiere within the framework of the Curtain Up festival. The work was originally commissioned for the 2008 European Union Capital of Culture festival at Stavanger, Norway. Pinto, Pollak and company collaborated with the Norwegian Kitchen Orchestra, an eclectic group of gifted musicians hailing from a variety of artistic backgrounds. The piece had its genesis in a former brewery turned cultural center. As is usual in a Pinto\Pollak work, dance and theater, text and movement are intertwined. The actor\dancers work in water and even the walls get in on the act. The music is live and improvised throughout the performance, so that no show is ever exactly the same. "Don't try to understand," advises a Norwegian critic, "open your eyes and ears and just enjoy." Catch Trout on Saturday, December 5 at 9 p.m. at the Suzanne Dellal Center, Rehov Yehieli 5, Tel Aviv.
