a Danceperformance by Merav Dagan & Stav Marin

We came here to beat, to birth a present body from bodies that we never studied and from those that we never dared to imagine. We are assembling and dismantling building blocks and live matter- moving through our Hebrew mouths and the history of our female, dancing bodies.
In the end, everything is a pulse, beaten between us, inside of us, that would stay and perhaps, through it, we could dance the future.

TSENA URENA is the second artistic collaboration by Stav Marin and Merav Dagan. The work continues their common research, exploring representations of the female body. Through physical and vocal work ranging from meditative mantras to rap and pop songs, they return not only to their personal and bodily history, but also to a language that Hebrew culture sought to silence and exclude from the Israeli space -
