Big Mouth


Big Mouth
3 performers spin into a march based on Israeli folk dance steps. Cornerstones from the national cannon blast out into the space demanding unity and conformity. The performers become trapped between their desire to become part of the system on one hand, and explore their personal identity on the other. "Big Mouth" explores the relationship of the individual to the collective and to structure, and the tension between the desire for independence and the surrounding framework.

Keren Levi
He has built an international profile as a choreographer since 2004 with a body of work performed in over 20 countries including "Territory" (BNG award winner) and "Couple-Like" (in collaboration with Ugo Dehaes). In the past few years, Levi has been touring with "Big Mouth" (made and performed together with Oren Laor and Niv Sheinfeld) and "Couple-Like # 2" (also in collaboration with Dehaes - a new version for youngsters and a winner of a Silver Cricket award in 2011).

In spring 2012 Levi premiered "The Dry Piece" at the opening program of Festival a / d Werf, Utrecht, which is still on tour. "To Band" - a dance-music performance for 12 youngsters in collaboration with musician Tom Parkinson and a commission of Frascati Theatre, Amsterdam, premiered in November 2012 at the Breakin'walls Festival.
Levi teaches dance, bodywork and choreography in the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) and the Modern Dance Department in the School for Performing Arts Amsterdam (AHK), as well as in festivals, training programs and companies across Europe.

Chopin's Waltzes create the atmosphere for this energetic and humoristic perspective on the complexity of relationship. The dramaturgy leads the duo from the colourful phase of seduction to the later phases of manipulation and battle, confusion and finally acceptance. The duet premiered in 2004 and was presented in Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Poland, Italy, Brazil, Serbia, Portugal and Greece.

Sheinfeld also teaches dance and creation in the School of Visual Theater in Jerusalem, Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv and others.


Directing: Oren Laor
He studied theatre and performance at the University of Tel Aviv from 1993-1997. During this time, he has worked with highly praised theatre directors such as Yvgeny Arye, Edna Shavit, Nola Chilton and Yossi Israeli. Laor's theatre training led him to focus on independent creation, and from 2004 he has created contemporary dance works together with Niv Sheinfeld.
