About the performances:

On Valentine's Day, 1962, Jackie Kennedy invited television cameras into the White House to what would become an iconic tour of the extensive renovation she championed. In doing so, she reshaped the world's image of the First Lady and of ladies altogether.

In Tel Aviv, 2019, armed with a pink suit (not a Chanel), Ori Lenkinski summons Kennedy's energy to take the audience on a tour of the here and now.

Experimenting Hypnosis Solo by Maya Brinner

The piece explores the connections between the audience's eye and the performer on stage – as an act of hypnosis.

In this act, a relationship of trust and reciprocity, of seduction and manipulation is established, and questions arise regarding the power balance between audience and performer – and who is in control of the performative act.

"A choreographer whose work often employs and reflects upon repeated motions, here too, a repeated motion intensifies and develops, leading into another shape or kind of motion, with, as the title of the work implies, a mesmerizing effect.

It was a visually fascinating performance that did spark a multitude of images and thoughts – not the least of which is the relationship between the exposed position of the dancer onstage and the question of what is revealed, what is concealed, and in this act of hypnosis or seduction, who is in control?"

(Ayelet Dekel, Midnight East)
