“[A] complex, engaging and inspiring creation” —Haaretz
“unique, refreshing and powerful” —Habama
“Bursting with energy and human passion.” —The Jerusalem Post


American-born Barak Marshall—son of the great dancer, choreographer and musician Margalit Oved—has become one of Israeli dance’s most explosive artists. He served as the venerable Batsheva Dance Company’s first-ever house choreographer and has gone on to establish an impressive career on his own terms. Set to a score combining elements of Gypsy, Balkan, classical and rock music, Monger is bold, highly emotive physical-theater for 10 dancers. Originally commissioned by the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theater in Tel Aviv, the piece explores themes of power, free will and survival instinct through the story of a group of servants trapped in the basement of their abusive mistress’ home.
