Bodystreet is a dance-headphones work that takes place in the public space. We started the project by approaching women and men, young and old people, Arabs and Jews, refugees and newcomers, all living in South Tel Aviv, and asking them to share their private experiences walking down the street. These confessions were adapted and performed by Can Ensemble actors and are accompanied by an original score.
The audience, equipped with earpieces, goes on a tour of Florentin neighborhood. Along the way, they are joined by two performers who, through movement, emphasize the connection between the location and the person inhabiting it. In addition, the dance intensifies the experience of being ‘the other,’ the ‘odd one out’ that arises from the soundtrack. Thus the audience is granted a ‘conscious stroll’ that turns the threatened, crowded, wide-open, loud and militant Israeli space into poetry, a street poem.

We’re talking about a brilliant idea, no less… wandering around the streets of Florentin is fun, but doing that with headphones and listening to the people living there is something completely different. And it gets even better when you have dancers running and jumping all around you, allowing themselves to fly
