It All Comes Down To Me
A full length duet for a female and a male dancer.
For over 10 years, Altabeb has been researching the marital relationship in her works, as if trying to understand how it takes place, how the years affect it and what is the key to its success.
Creation and personal life blend into one. Apparently, not in vain, since they are each other’s source.
Altabeb creates an autobiography in her new work, in which she talks about the individual within the relationship and how these nourish each other, collide with each other and seek an answer to each other.
“The really beautiful things Do not walk outside Sometimes they happen in a room, When the doors are locked and the shutters are closed … “(Dalia Ravikovic)
