Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollack are the artistic directors and choreographers of Inbal Pinto & Avshalom Pollak Dance Company, based in Israel. Ms. Pinto participated in an ADF International Choreographer’s Residency in 1997 and returned the following year for the International Choreographer’s Commissioning Program, where she presented her piece Frieda & Rosa. In 2007 Ms. Pinto and Mr. Pollack collaborated with festival favorite, Pilobolus, in the breathtaking work Rushes, an ADF commission. The company returned to ADF in 2010 with the raucous and mysterious Oyster.
In speaking of their experience with ADF, Ms. Pinto and Mr. Pollack remarked, “The delightful calculus of our ADF experiences has yielded the honor of many residencies, collaborations, and company performances. We congratulate the unique American Dance Festival on their anniversary and salute them as one of the very few places in this world providing so many opportunities for dancers, choreographers and artists.”
