20 20

Tamir ETING (Israël)

In this interplay of friable tensions, dancers activate and control LED-strip embroidered metal rods that sculpt space and time to scramble all our frames of reference as viewers. 20 20 is a highly meditative, evocative work. This landscape of sorts – built between light and shade – inhabited by three half-naked, roaming bodies conjures up a post-apocalyptic state between tension and attention, closeness and distance, the visible and the invisible.

Tamir Eting was born in 1990, and trained at Maslool, the professional dance programme at Bikurey Ha’ltim’ Art Center in Tel Aviv-Yafo. After performing for three years with Bathsheva Ensemble Dance Company, he worked for internationally renowned Israeli choreographers like Ohad Naharin, Sharon Eyal and Hofesh Shechter. Now based in Amsterdam, where he studies at the SNDO (School for New Dance Development), he also teaches Gaga, the movement language invented by Ohad Naharin. He is engaged in choreographic research on the intersection of dance and philosophy.
