THE DIPLOMATS by Renana Raz

Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre

Premiered: November 24, 2011 - Karmiel Performing Arts Centre

December 2, 2011 - Suzanne Dellal Centre, Tel Aviv - International Exposure 2011.The soundtrack of the piece consists of national anthems.  The piece disconnects the anthems from their political patriotic context, and suggest a more private and even emotional interpretation. The anthems, each of them represents a separate independent unit, turn into a single blend and produce a new narrative through movement and composition. The body, which during the playing of the anthem is normally required to

stay still, for the first time is granted the opportunity to dance to it's melody. Performed at:

Suzanne Dellal Centre, Tel Aviv  |  Modafe Festival, Seoul (Korea)
