The piece In-Dependent is the product of a long - term collaboration with the artist / musician Niko Hafkenscheid. The collaboration began in 2012, at the culmination of Altabeb's last piece "Never the less" .
Hafkenscheid was one of the musicians contributing to the soundtrack of the piece. In 2013 Altabeb, Moshe & Hafkenscheid began their collaboration creating In-dependent. The work process was a collaborative effort between Israeli dance & Belgian music.
During this year the creative artists had the opportunity to work with dancers in the studio in Israel on three occasions,
in order to maximize their collaborative potential. During Hafkenscheid's visits, he participated in the events of "Creator - curator"
Created by Altabeb & Moshe at Warehouse 2 Jaffa, funded by the Bistrizki foundation & the Choreographer's association.
