Music/Sound for Everything You Have Is Yours?


  • Brooklyn Studios For Dance 210 Lafayette Avenue Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

“Everything you have is yours?” investigates the construction of Israeli identity through gestures appropriated from Palestinian and Yemeni culture. Hadar Ahuvia and Mor Mendel imitate and translate instructional videos of Israeli folk dances by Israelis and American Christian Zionists, embodying distance and proximity to Israel, Israeliness, and enacting the feedback loop through which national ideology is disseminated and sustained. In their performative mirroring of these videos, they reveal the subtext of dances, making explicit the Otherness at the kernel of Israeli identity.
