The swing rocks and livens the heart with pleasure and joy, and at the same time is dizzying and causes nausea. Four characters in a room with no ability to escape, expose a new dimension of observation on what is happening within them: between their body and its environment, between their body and their soul, and between their souls and themselves. 

 

The creation examines the notions of motherhood and family and points to the complexity of the human experience from a desire to illuminate the possibility of containing the obscure, vague and constantly changing.

 

The creation was developed in The Menashe Dance House and is supported by The Israeli Choreographers Association, The Ministry of Culture and by The Tel Aviv Municipality.
