One, One & One
This new original dance creation by choreographer Noa Wertheim revolves around the individual's inner wish to be whole, while constantly being challenged by a fragmented reality within the existential social and spiritual realms.
One, One and One involves both the internal and external worlds, paying attention to the echo as reflected from different directions while developing the metaphoric relationship between far and near and self and the other.
