Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor

Posted in 2014, Performances '14.

ADF and the Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University co-present Two Room Apartment by Israeli choreographers Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor. Originally choreographed in 1987 by the male and female couple Nir Ben Gal and Liat Dro, Sheinfeld and Laor have recreated this seminal work on themselves. Instead of the traditional proscenium setting, audience members are invited to sit around the perimeter of a square shaped performance space. In this short interview Sheinfeld and Laor speak about how their own personal histories, both as partners and as artists, have influenced the ways in which they’ve crafted this contemporary reconstruction. Two Room Apartment will be performed on Tuesday June 17th at 7pm & 9pm.
