Ramnagar's new work invites the viewer to witness the changes taking place among the artists on stage, each time a different door opens. The doors are a metaphor for the energy that makes up life: joy, sadness, embarrassment, enthusiasm, shame or intensity and every time they open they change us completely.
The show is built on a sequence of segments that are born with the opening of those doors and raise the questions - Is this how our life events are structured? Do we, humans, actually move between doors during the day that dictate the energy we are in? Do the doors appear further to our summoning or do they show up and force us to pass through them without any ability to avoid them.
The show, which is about 70 minutes long, gives the viewer eight uniquely characterized segments as stated, but what makes the sequence special are the precise sharp passages between them. Alongside these transitions, Keren and Avner choose to bring to the stage our choice between the individual and the general and to examine in which moments we choose the solitary door rather than the social door.
The sections are purposefully arranged in a chronological order that surprises the viewer every time and makes him/her feel from the beginning of the show a sense of uncertainty about the upcoming section.
The Music This time, Avner Pesach, the Artistic and Musical Director of the show has chosen to pay tribute to the great flamenco artists in Spain such as: Diego Carasco, Manuel Molina, Farruquito alongside texts and original music that are part of the band's tradition over the years. The Remangar artists will be joined by 2 guest artists: bass artist Eran Horowitz and one of Israel's leading wind instrument players, Yoni Dror.
The Flamenco Remangar Band The Flamenco Remengar Band under the artistic direction of dancer duo Keren and Avner Pesach, was established in 2006 upon their return to Israel after a 10-year stay in Spain. During their stay in Spain, they studied and performed alongside one of the world's best known flamenco families - Los Farrucos - and then went on to perform on important world-wide stages. The band's uniqueness is reflected in its original works with respect to music, texts and choreography. The band's performances are always accompanied by live music and the highest sound quality and are highly acclaimed by critics. The band is made up of 10 artists - dancers, musicians and singers - and acts as a professional band that raises new premières every year in leading halls in Israel.
