American Dance Festival - Two Room Apartment

American Dance Festival – Two Room Apartment, 7 and 9 PM

ADF and the Nasher Museum co-present Two Room Apartment by Israeli choreographers Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor. Sheinfeld and Laor have recreated the seminal 1987 work Two Room Apartment, which helped make a name for Israeli dance. This award-winning work, originally created and performed by the male and female couple Nir Ben Gal and Liat Dro, has been reworked as a dance for two men. The duet reflects on their relationship as partners in life and as creators. Both personal and political, the work examines boundaries in various contexts: physical borders, such as between territories or between two rooms, but also non-physical borders, such as the one between life and performance, and the boundaries that the individual sets for himself. There will be limited chair seating available, on a first-come first-served basis, for these performances. Additional seating will be available on the floor, and audience members will also have the option of standing. Performance is approx. 50 minutes and contains nudity.  


The Nasher Museum is the only U.S. venue for Two Room Apartment in 2014.
