Critical junctures in spectator / performer interactions in Tetris by Noah Dar

Critical junctures in spectator / performer interactions in Tetris by Noah DarThe Israeli choreographer Noah Dar and the plastic artist Nati Shamia-Ofer collaborate in Tetris,a dance that was ordered in 2006 by the Akko Festival of Alternative Theatre in Israel (The dance was awarded for its innovation). The dialogue between the artists generates a unique performance space in which the viewers observe the occurrence from the place where the dancers' feet meet the dancing floor. Shamia-Ofer created for this dance a special structure - a raised wooden floor, in which openings were made. The viewers stand under that surface, insert their heads through the openings and watch the dance.
