Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor 

The Third Dance

Scroll Down

"A clever and graceful work with deep insights-clearly a labor of love and beyond." 

-The Jerusalem Post 

Israeli choreographers Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor have been creating fascinating dance/theatre pieces that reflect their own personal relationship as a couple in life and on stage. In their new work The Third Dance, performed in the round (audience on all four sides), Niv and Oren reflect upon themes of love, mortality, and the need for acknowledgement. An old-fashioned record player and huge bouquet of flowers play important roles in this highly emotional work.
