Ekodoom – It’s Not Time, It’s Us
West Coast Premiere
The Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company is one of Israel's most prominent dance companies that has gained international renown performing all over the world to great acclaim. With its exclusive and unique character a trademark both in Israel and abroad, KCDC has been widely identified with the works of its Artistic Director Rami Be'er whose creations have been met with unswerving international praise.
Featuring a company of 18 dancers, Ekodoom is an incisive and eclectic observation of and about ourselves, performed and choreographed with magnificent skill and artistry. In a penetrating and enthralling sequence of scenes, Be'er creates a world with all its component parts and possibilities; the harsh, cruel, gray world in conflict, and the world of fantasy, dreams and romance.
"Their highly developed artistry as skilled dancers surprised the audience. Their inventiveness and sophistication intrigued it. But their sheer energy and exuberance as performers overwhelmed it." - Sam Lipski, The Australian News
