Israeli choreographer Saar Harari and Actress Lee Sher craft a compelling coda to the critically heralded “Herd of Bulls,” in which explosive military movement was co-opted to inform one soldier’s journey through the emotional aftermath of violence.

Here, the company’s physical vocabulary implodes, occupying a mental territory torn by the duality of living a life of freedom in a place where others cannot. Underscored by the live accompaniment of composer Brian Prunka on the oud (a traditional Arabic instrument), writhing, undulating bodies unite and collide, ricocheting between manifestations of sensual pleasure, joy and tenderness to anger, fear and madness – engaging the audience in a riveting exploration of humanity and the right to dream.

Made possible in part by the Office of Cultural Affairs, Consulate General of Israel in New York.

Featuring: Ellen Cremer, Rossella Fusco, Saar Harari, Rachel Okimo, Brian Prunka, Lee Sher.

“Intense emotions and quick-shifting physical states… Ingenious… They fall, rise and inch across the floor as if wounded, slipping through quick bursts of emotions, hunting.”
