Israel is a place of art lovers – there is no other way to explain the incredible amount of 4.5 million tickets annually that are sold for theatre, shows, dance and music.
However, this also leaves a large group of people who might be generally interested in arts and music but wouldn’t actually go to see a show on stage.
This is the target audience of Avi Kaiser and Sergio Antonino for their performance ‘At your place’.
Their modern dance show has been extremely successful with more than 100 performances all over the world since 2009 .
Their credo is – never on stage! Therefore they dance in living rooms, open places and wherever someone invites the couple that is currently dividing their time between Tel Aviv and Duisburg in Germany.
“This project has the intention to avoid the theatrical system and its way of functioning. It comes as close as possible to the people who are interested in movement as a form of expression”, says Avi Kaiser at his apartment in Tel Aviv.
In June, for the first time, the dancers became the hosts of their own show and invited a small audience into their living room.
For them, it was a unique experience of intimacy – and a successful one. After returning to Israel in September, they are going to continue hosting ‘At your Place’ at their place in Israel.
