Some contact dance experience necessary. Not much, but the aim of this class is to elevate the skill level of those with some contact experience. Ilya Domanov and Aharona Israel are highly experienced theatre/movement artists, based in Israel, who are on tour in Canada with Marathon, Aharona’s theatre work for 3 performers being presented by Public Energy on Feb. 12 at the Market Hall.
Ilya Domanov is an actor, performer and teacher of movement arts. Originally from Moscow, he has worked extensively as a performer and director in Israel, Europe and Russia. He brings his acting skills and background in performance, improvisation and contact dance to a unique exploration of dance and movement on stage.
Aharona Israel is an interdisciplinary artist whose varied training – she is trained in dance and holds a B.A. in architecture – informs a body of work that combines intimate research into body and movement with a strong sensibility to social and political themes. Her works have been seen in festivals and theatres in Israel and across Europe since 2002.
