By Dafi Altabeb & Nini Moshe
The piece received the Israeli Ministry of Culture Excellence Award for 2018 ensemble performance
Premiered on September 2017
A full length piece for 8 dancers about memory. 9 different memories crossing each other on one stage, completing a story.
"just as you can’t step in the same river twice, your memories are changed by the act of recalling them,
every memory we have, is colored by the times we’ve recollected it before and every time you take a memory off the shelf in your brain, you put it back just a tiny bit different".
