The British Council and the Clore Israel Foundation are excited to present:  SHOW UK

 

SHOW UK is an initiative launched by the British Council and the Clore Israel Foundation, designed to showcase contemporary British culture and strengthen bonds between our creative communities. The series of cultural pop up events at festivals across Israel features multidisciplinary arts and celebrates British diversity and innovation. SHOW UK also aims to create inclusive opportunities and engage with communities throughout the country.

The launching of SHOW UK will launch on the 26th of April at the "Fresh Paint Fair"

In the presence of Mr. Christian Duncumb, Director of the British Council Israel, and the British Ambassador in Israel Mr. David Quarrey  

For its inauguration, SHOW UK brings you the captivating performance

I Infinite by the Tom Dale Company.

I Infinite is a part dance, part video installation. It’s a solo dance piece that uses hypnotizing imagery and movement to deliver a mesmerizing meditation on the digital world’s quest to re-create life. I Infinite is performed in a white cube space. You, the audience, are free to roam the space as you please, to stand close to the dancer or just sit, transfixed, to watch the delicate movement so often missed in more traditional theatre spaces.

Created by Tom Dale, Barret Hodgson, Maria Olga Palliani / Co-produced by Dance4 / Supported by British Council, Dance Digital, Deda, National Lottery through Arts Council England and Nottingham Lakeside Arts.

Choreography: Tom Dale/ Digital Media Artist: Barret Hodgson / Performers: Jemima Brown and Maja Furnes

Duration: 50 min.

Audience capacity: 40

Wheelchair accessible.

 

 

“Together with the Clore Israel Foundation, we’re delighted to be unveiling SHOW UK at Fresh Paint, marking the beginning of an exciting new cultural relations project between the UK and Israel. We look forward to welcoming Tom Dale to Israel for the first time to present his acclaimed I Infinite show, which by merging digital design and dance, is a great example of the UK’s innovative arts scene, and an excellent starting point for building connections with Israeli youth’’.
