After a period of 6 months teaching and performing at Reed College in Portland Oregon, USA, as part of the Schusterman Foundation artist in residency program, Iris Is back home in Israel and is going to perform her recent solo work”Local/Not easy“. This work that was performed in a different language and context, got a very vivid and intense perspective about the way the local space is represented through the personal body. Going back home geographically, phyhsically and linguistically, Iris will go back to researching the way language , space and locallity is influencing the individual and how its all manifested in our own bodies in a way that questions our free will.

The work will lbe presented in 2 different places:
