E-sheket/116 Reasons (2016)

A dance and video piece by Maayan Liebman-Sharon & Yaara Nirel E-sheket/116 Reasons is a collaboration between choreographer Maayan Liebman-Sharon, video artist Yaara Nirel and scientist Prof. Ofra Benny who studied over the past year the synthesis of nanoscience and visual art and created a piece that investigating the point of interface between the technological alienation and the human existential anxiety state. The living body is examined under the lens of microscope – enlarged, duplicated, dismantled and creates a molecular complex world, remarkably close to the chaotic reality in which we live in.

The work was created as a part of the “Nano-art” project, that combines art and nanoscience, initiated by The Jerusalem Municipality, The Hebrew University, Machol Shalem center, Hazira and Maamuta. The piece premiered at Machol Shalem Festival 2016

 

 Heavily Ever after (2019)

A dance and video piece By Maayan Liebman-Sharon & Yaara Nirel Through a duet between a dancer and video screening, the work ‘Heavily Ever After’ looks back at the iconic saying that haunts us – Happily ever after. What actually happens on the day after “ever after”?

Based on the iconic solo “The man I love” by Pina Bausch we look at the gap between fantasy and reality; between the inner will to the expectations of society; and examine which images are so often inserted into our hearts and heads making us embrace this narrative.

The piece premiered in ‘Intimadance’ festival 2019, Tmuna Theatre, Tel Aviv, Israel.
