Art wants, art should, art may, it must! It spreads and becomes loud when a dance performance is called ART ATTACK. With this group piece, the experienced duo Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor from Israel illuminate a relationship: that of the society, perhaps represented by the audience, with the art and with the artists. The performers pose and run, tumble, dance and entertain so that the sparks fly. Dynamism! Variety! Eyes open! Music drives into the limbs and memory.
“We want to praise the aggressive movement, the ﬁebrige sleeplessness, the running step, the somersault, the slap in the face and the punch in the fist”, wrote Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in Manifesto of Futurism in 1909. Manifestos play a crucial role in ART ATTACK, written by artists of different professions. None of them has the last word, and what is serious and what is not keeps the attack in the balance. “We must stop despising desire,” demanded Valentine de Saint-Point in the 1913 Lust-Futurism counter-manifesto.”
NIV SHEINFELD was a dancer and choreographer for Kibbutz and Batsheva Dance Company, among others. OREN LAOR studied acting and drama at Tel Aviv University. They have been working together and touring worldwide since 2004. The quartet ART ATTACK premiered in Tel Aviv in April 2021.
