Ronit Ziv | One out of one
The performance includes audience participation.
“Hitting a person, touching him, pushing or exerting force on his body in any other way, directly or indirectly, without his consent or with the consent obtained in a mountain fraud, is an assault” (section 378 of the Penal Code, 1977)
Sections 378.379.380 of the Penal Code 1977, followed by sections of the 1991 Prevention of Domestic Violence Act, have been enshrined in law for decades. Still, violent injuries to the family and elsewhere are still going on. Where are they and what is the role of the circles that are supposed to provide protection (legislation, courts, police and more)? What is our role as a company? As human beings? As viewers and viewers of the show?

“Ronit Ziv’s work is a cry for the need to change and update the rules … The physical body tells about the violence in the dynamics of excitement.” (Ruth Eshel, Dance Diaries)
