Absurdity becomes reality in dancing steps

The 21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival will continue tomorrow with Israel’s entry, which will invite us into a journey of discovery.

The internationally acclaimed Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pallak dance group will present the piece Icetree, choreographed by the famous Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak, who have gained awards in many countries around the world.

Icetree takes us into the world of Pinto’s and Pollak’s collaborative work. With this piece the duo perform in a familiar landscape but one which reminds us of faraway places and other times. “In this fantasy world chairs come to live in the dance and the absurd instantly becomes reality. This is a tragicomic encounter between characters in the search for an author and forgotten beings, in a place that is nowhere and everywhere, creating a world made of broken dreams,” according to the press release.

Pinto and Pollak founded their dance company in 1992. Together they have been involved in a variety of artistic endeavours, including the creation, direction, design and choreography of unique, award-winning, dance performances for their company of 12 dancer-actors based out of the Suzanne Dellal centre in Tel Aviv. Their works have been widely acclaimed and presented in many countries around the world.

Dance performance by the Inbal Pinto & Avshalom Pollak Dance Company as part of the 21st Cyprus Contemporary Dance Festival. June 24. Rialto Theatre, Limassol. 8.30pm. €5 per performance/ €20 festival pass. Tel: 77-777745
