Presented By Ofir Yudilevitch


Part of Dancing City

4 & 5 September

Duration: 30 mins

What to Expect: Speech free


This highly playful performance combines dance and acrobatics and explores the joy in simply letting gravity take charge. As two acrobats bounce and roll on an outdoor airmat, they realise that no matter how complex their acrobatic feats, ultimately, gravity is the driving force that they can either surrender to it or push against.

About the company

In his pieces, Ofir seeks to embody an extreme physicality, some of which come from his background as an acrobat and Capoeira teacher. His interest lies in stretching the limits of his performer’s bodies and capabilities and broadening the borders of what is considered dance and choreography.

The duet Gravitas is impressive in Ofir and Asher’s passion to use their bodies to discover the movement possibilities that are born from giving in to gravity… The beauty lies in the mixture between the extreme physical effort and its fusion with the pleasure of the embraced fall. This type of material can broaden the borders of movement in dance. – Ruth Eshel, Haaretz

Supported by
