Grounded and organic yet driven and unyielding, Vertigo’s dancers attack the contemporary movement with an honesty that engages audience members to feel the vulnerability of emotions being unpacked onstage. One of Israel’s most highly regarded contemporary dance companies; Vertigo takes the viewer on an exciting and challenging journey into unfamiliar territories with every performance. The company strives to bring people closer together and touch them through the language of the body and movement, which can be felt from their powerful performances. The March performance of Vertigo Dance Company at Playhouse Square will feature, their new work “One. One & One” created by Artistic Director, Noa Wertheim. The piece was inspired by the fifth chapter of the Yoma Tractate and features the artists dancing among soil scattered on the stage, giving the audience a full sensory experience. The performance exudes internal struggle between individual wishes versus social unity and showcases the different directions that the dancers can take. The movement style of Vertigo’s dancers will awe audiences as Wertheim challenges the limits of the body through dance.
