Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollack premiere the Fugue, a reflective work on a resurgent past, worlds that never existed, shadows and figures that take shape, memories. The new work explores the incarnations of memory by creating a rich array of sensations, colors and sounds. In the work, the first collaboration between the choreographer Inbal Pinto and the Israeli cellist and singer Maya Belzitsman, the two artists reconstruct life pictures, past events and lost figures. The mind and emotion become the arena of preservation of memories in which the empty space left by all this, is filled with fragments of thought and circles of resonance, rekindled for a limited time, experiences forgotten but not erased hat reverberate like a distant inner voice. Imagine an old banqueting hall that operated somewhere in the 1920s. Look at the emptiness that exists and imagine what was and is not ... how the abandoned space assumes the memory that, like a forgotten resonance box, continues to play from the distance of time ... The inner resonance becomes instantaneously a vibration that contains a life that immediately fills up before the eyes of the beholder. Maya Belizitzman - cello player, singer and musician was born in Tel Aviv. She is a graduate of the Conservatory of Music in Tel Aviv, the School of Arts, Thelma Yellin High School. She has worked with a long line of artists and musicians including Ninet Tayeb, Danny Sanderson, David Broza, Nurit Galron, Miri Mesika, Rockfor, Yoni Bloch, Izhar Ashdot, Efrat Gosh, Rita, Shilo Farber and Ehud Banai. Belzitsman also appears in musical ensembles that accompany the productions of the Cameri Theater of Tel Aviv and in joint performances with the drummer Matan Efrat.
