Kaet Ensemble brings to stage questions about the human-body of the Israeli-Jewish man, which goes through rapid changes and dilemmas regarding his masculine identity.
Does the body still carries the TORAH and the spirit within, or maybe it's already full of muscles and flesh of a soldier-athlete?
Kaet Ensemble offers the third possibility, the fusion that is created in the complex contemporary Israeli lab.
Choreography: Ronen Izhaki. Dancers: Hanania Schwartz, Yuval Azoulay, Eyal Ogen, Yair Barbash.
This work in collaboration with JW3: Jewish Community Center for London

We find ourselves between heaven and earth, between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, between the ancient world of Hassidism and the world of modern culture. We benefit from being mediators between these two extremes and are grateful for the existence of the extremes, as they are. We clap with our left and right hands.
This work was produced with support from the Jerusalem Foundation and from the Ministry of Sport and Culture – Dance Division.

In the work “Dust” from Ronen Izhaki, with fear and trembling, we enter the world of the “white death” (1981) – one of the first works of Ruth Ziv Eyal, a work that is the genetic code of Ruth’s repertoire and the essence of her unique language. Together with his brave partners for this journey – Kaet ensemble, a contemporary dance troupe of religious men that works in the framework of “Between Heaven and Earth”, Ronen connects between different times and places to forge new creations.
This work was originally produced as part of a project supported by the Israeli Lottery.

Between the sacred and the profane, between the secular ecstasy of nightclubs and the religious ecstasy that is expressed through the praying body, through fear and trembling.

Six men circle around a table, sometimes as drunken peasants at a feast, sometimes as Hasids at a house of study – underneath and above the table lies an ancient reality interspersed with the present day. A committee through movement is formed.
