Description

Using evocative imagery and intense physicality, Barak Marshall’s, Monger explores the dynamics of hierarchy, power, dignity and the compromises one makes to order to survive and features 10 leading dancers from acclaimed Israeli companies including Batsheva Dance Company, Kibbutz Dance Company, Vertigo Dance Company and the Inbal Pinto Dance Company. Marshall’s mysterious world is enhanced by a varied score that incorporates the music of Balkan Beat Box, Handel, Verdi and NPR’s Yiddish Radio Project.
