About the Work

“After Chorus” was a collaboration with Isreali artists Noa Zuk and Ohad Fishof. Ohad assisted in the creation of the work as dramaturg, and composed and recorded the score. Noa Zuk’s choreography operates on our experience in ways that both connect and disconnect. Zuk’s unconventional use of gesture and action creates new physical connections that free the viewers imagination to make new associations. We are brought into a purely physical world, a series of relationships without the normal emotional clues, that nonetheless connect to our subconscious in deeply meaningful ways.
