APHILU OPHELIA by RINA SCHENFELD
Barbara Hannigan – “one of today’s most astonishing musical artist” “received the 2018 grammy award”
“a glowing voice and aura” and Nadav Lev , an Israeli guitarist “an exceptional virtuoso on both classical and electric guitar” , are guests artists in Rina Schenfeld's new dance evening
“OPHELIA”, performing to the music of “the greatest composers of our day”.
Our ophelia does not drown herself as in Shakespeare’s play, she does not float away like a dead nymph amid garlands of flowers.
Our ophelia fights an angel, drops her feathers, spreads flowers, dances with shadows, changes clothes, spreads her wings and flies away.
Rina Schenfeld's dance repertory is reinvented for the 30 years celebration of Suzanne Dellal centre.
