Interactive video Installation


The audience is invited to pour sand over a strainer, thus creating a screen that enables them to “catch” the projected bird in its flight.The sisyphic repetitive action of pouring the sand until it runs out and the bird which is revealed for only a brief moment, are a symbol of the difficulty in capturing beauty, to the elusiveness of time and to the almost impossible yearn for perceiving, and fully experiencing a moment in time.

Music: Gil Lavi


Production of The Shlomi Center for Creativity for Muses Festival, Shoham.

Dance Theater



Movement trio for a mother and her two daughters confined to a closed domestic space.

Each of the characters longs for privacy and independence, as well as human warmth and intimacy. Possible contact with the outside world is a mere wish. The closed space contains rigid rules and limitations. It generates the need to create an alternative reality: a new, imaginary world made up of linked desires and dreams, validated in view of ‘real’ and reality.

a day




A woman as a vessel, empties and refills, driven by everyday activities.

Contains, regurgitates and refills again, only to be overflooded.
