As part of the Jewish Music and Theatre Week 2021
COBRA BLONDE crosses the obvious border between two worlds of expression that rarely come into contact with each other: traditional German Gardetanz and contemporary art. At the centre of this border crossing is the focus on gender roles within the different scenes. Choreographer Reut Shemesh’s project examines the representation of female dancers in the context of traditional carnival celebrations and opens up a contradictory, almost tragic view of this form of entertainment. An unusual aesthetic as well as political field of forces emerges between the approach common in contemporary dance to thematise individuality and the power of the community from which the dance guards draw. With COBRA BLONDE, Reut Shemesh focuses on the longing for the representability of an authentic identity – if this can exist at all.
