Dancers were skilled, but could not figure out the meaning of the choreography even after I read the synopsis. Fairly interesting set and use of set. Costumes were overly bulky; probably had something to do with projection of meaning, but again not sure what that was. Did not leave me with very strong emotions either way... The dance company is known for bringing in the unusual in the dance world. This one was not a homerun for me, but many liked it.

- "Unique, rich and evolving. An extraordinary experience." --Ynet News (Israel)
Founded in 1992 in Jerusalem by Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha’al, Vertigo is regarded as one of Israel’s most revered and dynamic dance companies. Vertigo will make its long overdue West Coast debut with their breathtaking new work Mana, Vessel of Light, choreographed by Wertheim, that has been already called a masterwork by critics in Israel and abroad. Performing against a huge silhouette of a house, Vertigo’s gifted dancers will take you on a fascinating journey through light and dark, interior and exterior, quiet restraint and extreme physicality.
