ELISH – A piece by Tamar Borer in collaboration with Bar Eran and Yael Ben Shalom
The performance presents the human gaze on the layered reality which is in a constant state of metamorphosis: the image that accompanies the work is the life cycle of metal. A cycle that begins as stardust in space, drops down and turns into mineral crystals on earth, erodes, and finally, rises back up to space as dust.
The dance reflects constant transformation states: a kind of a journey, using extreme motion and voice combined with soft and introverted moves.
The live video offers another perspective, a different point of view on the same reality.
The live music weaves rich and complex sound surfaces which create an intense dialogue with the dance and the video, empowering the primeval and spatial atmosphere of the work.
The name Elish is taken from the Babylonian creation story Anuma Elish : When from Above.
