AGADA - work in progress
choreographed by Rotem Weissman for nein9 kollektiv.
A G A D A is a full-length dance performance, choreographed by Rotem Weissman for nein9 kollektiv. The work is derived from the Hebrew song “Agada Yapanit” (Japanese Fable), written by Ehud Manor and composed by Ariel Zilber in 1972. The song describes a pointless tragedy about blind ambition precipitating absurd and unnecessary violence, with an implication that this cycle is inevitable.
