Local/not easy (2016)

How does space construct the active body in it?

As one who moved from the city to the village, from the beach to the mountain, from the bubble to the borderline, from singlehood to motherhood – I wish to discover how does space influence me and how does it make me who I am.

What is in between geography, demography topography and the private body?

Is one indeed nothing but "the imprint of his native landscape"? As Shaul Tchernichovsky's poem suggests.

From the Press

"It is one of her best works in which the show comes together in an open and graceful manner, which are translated physically into maturity and independence that move her choreography forward." Ora Brafman, Dancetalk

"Local /Not easy by Iris Erez: It has a magnetizing effect….very direct, very Israeli" (Ruth Eshel, Haaretz)
