“Unique, rich and evolving. An extraordinary experience.”
-Ynet News (Israel)
Founded in 1992 in Jerusalem by Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha’al, Vertigo is regarded as one of Israel’s most revered and dynamic dance companies. Vertigo will make its long overdue West Coast debut with their breathtaking new work Mana, Vessel of Light , choreographed by Wertheim, that has been already called a masterwork by critics in Israel and abroad. Performing against a huge silhouette of a house, Vertigo’s gifted dancers will take you on a fascinating journey through light and dark, interior and exterior, quiet restraint and extreme physicality.
The US Tour of Vertigo Dance Company's Mana is supported by the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Consulate General of Israel to the Pacific Northwest.
White Bird's presentation of Vertigo Dance Company is supported by WESTAF (Western States Arts Federation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
