Ode to SVM


A collaboration between two artists that is affected by the works of Jan Svankmajer and focuses on the gap between reason and aesthetics.


This is a "Therapoetic" study which presents chronic symptoms that flow into the room and flick their way between Man & Woman, Objects & Viewers.

This is an experiment that processes the image habitually until the loss of the habit itself.

This is a fanatastic world in which symptoms roam and blend into one another - A choreography in a space that its definition is obviously, controversial.


The piece premiered on August 2014 in "Intimadance" Festival, Tmu-na Theater, Tel-Aviv (IL).
