Tami Dance Company | Nimrod Freed | Israel
Nimrod Freed was living in N.Y.C for 10 years, after being invited to be part of Kei Takei's Moving Earth Dance Company. His first choreography was presented by The Riverside Dance Festival, N.Y.C. Nimrod received the Due Artist Festival award from Habima- the National Theatre of Israel. He teaches in the Kibbutzim College of Education, Technology and the Arts, the Jerusalem Academy for Music and Dance, and in the Acting Studio- Yoram Levinshtein.
Tami Dance Company | Nimrod Freed has been established by Nimrod, in 2004 with the generous support of Daniela and Daniel Steinmetz. Last summer, august 2007, the company was invited to perform in Tokyo and to collaborate with Kaym Dance Company: 6 Japanese dancers, only men. In the last few years, Tami Dance Company performed Nimrod's works in India, Portugal, Croatia, Romania, and Belarus - as well as in major festivals in Israel.
The choreographer Nimrod Freed takes the well known concept of the peep show (which is based on pleasure of glancing into private, intimate space), and he is choosing to let the audience peep to a different world of movement, dance and beauty. The audience is invited to move from one peep cell to the other, to watch through the holes dancing artists and to experience new perspective and relationships with dance.
5 peep cells. 25 peep holes in each cell. More then 125 people are having a peep at 5 different dance pieces, to 1 music, at the same time.
"Peep Dance" was performed in the Central Park Summer Stage Festival in New Yourk in July, in and in June it was performed in the Israel Festival – Jerusalem, in collaboration with KAyM Dance Company from Japan.
