Ella Rothschild is a choreographer, multi-disciplinary artist and dancer. Ella was a sensation in her performances of “JUDAS, CHRIST WITH SOY” which she choreographed and collaborated with Moriyama Mirai at Honmoku Area-2 (2015) and Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse No. 1 (2017). Ella has been dancing with <Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak Dance Company> and <Batsheva Dance Company> under the artistic direction of Ohad Naharin.
Since 2010, Ella is creating and developing her own movement language in her works and collaborating with artists from various disciplines. Her work integrates dance, visual-art and music.
Ella opens our program with a world premiere of “Futuristic Space”. The story of “Futuristic Space” takes place several thousand years in the future and reveals an image of a society that survived a big catastrophe. The work investigates the role of each character in the existents and survival of the group. It’s revealing the weakness of humanity when thus confronted with nature, integrating the work “Liminal Air-Space-Time” of contemporary artist Ohmaki Shinji .

Ohmaki Shinji

The theme of Ohmaki’s work has always been‘matter and space・existence’Through various techniques, he handles ‘space’‘time’‘gravity’‘memory’, developing such series as Echoe, Liminal Air, Flotage, and installation pieces like Memorial Rebirth. In there, the eyes catch the invisible and the body senses what is not visible, and that is what he seeks to achieve, a new bodily perceptive space.
His dynamic installation pieces stimulate all the bodily senses of the viewer, and by a tour de force seeming effortless, a simple space is converted into the unexpected, the uncommon world.
