Idan Cohen was born and raised in Israel, kibbutz Mizra. The kibbutz life has had a wide effect on his artistic life and work. He joined the world renowned Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in 1998, where he danced for seven seasons. Since 2005 he has been creating, performing and teaching successfully as an international award-winning independent choreographer. His new creation is an autobiographical fantasy that returns to Cohen’s early years growing up in the ’80s. Drawing upon punk and pop culture, Gender Bender incorporates images that reflect personal and social identities of masculinity, femininity and all that lies between. The piece takes ’80s gender-inspired images on a journey throughout the past and the present and creates a cultural cobweb of music, imagery, dance, and aspires to be a reflection of the influences and forces projected on us by the past and present culture, as well as our social environment.
