As part of the Jewish Music and Theatre Week 2021

What does it mean to do military service in Israel as a woman? In “LEVIAH”, choreographer Reut Shemesh shares memories of this time with the audience. She dares to focus on an aspect that is often kept quiet: the emotional turmoil and despair. Many experience a loss of control, have eating disorders and are at the mercy of harassment. “LEVIAH” paints a picture of vulnerability, power and powerlessness, lost dreams and sexual aberrations.

Reut Shemesh received the Cologne Dance Theatre Prize in 2016 for “LEVIAH”.
