The KCDC cast of physically eclectic dancers shares their beauty across Israel this January.
Artistic director Ramin Be’er and his choreographic powerhouse has prepared an exclusive collection of performances to show off the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company’s range of technical skills, striking strength and dynamic sensibilities. The company performs regularly at some of the most respected festivals and theatres worldwide.
While the KCDC starts its winter season off at home – the International Dance Village in Kibbutz Ga’aton – they soon depart from the scenic location for Petach Tikvah, the Kinneret, Tel Aviv, and eventually Germany, Poland and much of Europe and back. With a world premier in Jerusalem in April, the 2017 season is looking like a never-ending wave of excitement.
Here’s a sneak peak at just what January has to offer:
A biography told through movement of one of the most romantic and renowned Russian composers of all time: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. Set against a harmonious musical backdrop of Tchaichosky’s very own compositions, the hour-long ‘dance-play’ follows six KCDC dancers as they reenact his life and musical works through motion.

Horses in the Sky
Rami Be’er takes the audience on a wild, sensory journey through the art of movement as dancers exist in a space of constant change; brief moments of convergence – a glance or a touch – are followed by empty space, bursts of colour trigger a whiff of remembrance in time, and landscapes both solidify and fracture the dreamlike atmosphere in this apocalyptic performance.
