Good to see you all. Before we start, I would like to say that this time we felt like creating a simple dance. You know what I mean when I say a simple dance, right?
One where people move all kinds of organs and joints in a variety of shapes to sounds and melodies. One where there are no stereotypes and no archetypes and no Zionist symbols and no gender and no hill with warriors and no unnecessary gibberish.
No comic satire, and no deep philosophy and even if you dig deep and furrow your brow, you won’t find a single sacred cow.
Roy Assaf is a mammal belong to the species Homo sapiens, although there are those who are convinced he possesses Neanderthal genes. He was born in 1982 in a place that some call Israel and some call Palestine. He broke his front tooth at age five while dancing on the slippery floor of his family home. At age six he began giving tap concerts for his neighbor. At age 16 he met Regba Gilboa, who rooted in Roy the confidence that dance is where he belongs. In 2003 He met Emanuel Gat who introduced him to Schubert and for whom he wore his first dress. In 2011 he gathered the courage to make a dance after which he created another and another and continues to this day.
