Dance to live music performed by Carmel Quartet.
In a world of ropes and restrictions, four powerful women move between freedom and bondage. Sometimes they rebel, other times they collaborate, but always on the move, searching for that elusive feeling of liberty. Strings of rope are stretched across the stage. During the performance the dancers disassemble them and use them. Created for the magnificent and expressive string quartets no. 8 & 10 by Shostakovich, performed live on stage, Inbal Oshman’s new dance piece asks what limits our freedom – either from outside or from the inside. Gentle and violent, serene and playful, Shostakovich at Dusk is a rich and manifold choreographic journey into the dark and enlightened depths of human yearning for liberation.
