    Open rehearsal: SHALL WE TRY?

    The Arts Printing House international residency program introduces choreographers from Israel - Tslil Efrat and Yael Iddan.
    In SHALL WE TRY? choreographers study the issues of everyday life and use them as a way to talk about each other and get to know each other. In the piece choreographers are seeking to find what defines a person? His life, his profession, his memories? "We delve into the constant vibration that lies within our bodies and what lies above it - daily actions, pauses, movement, questions." In the open rehearsal you are welcome to see a sketch of the performance and share your impressions with the creators - this is very important for their creative process! date and time: August 6th 5pm | duration: 60 minutes | studio III Choreographers Tslil Efrat and Yael Iddan are residing at the Arts Printing House as part of a residency exchange with מחול שלם Machol Shalem Dance House
