Under the artistic direction of Noa Wertheim, the internationally acclaimed Israeli modern dance company Vertigo has begun its third decade with an impressive repertoire of original works. Beyond her contribution to cultural life in Israel, Wertheim’s unique approach promotes social change by creating an artistic connection with the community and the environment. Her latest work, PARDES (the Hebrew word for “orchard”), is a dance for six performers exploring the connection of the body to its inner spiritual layers while being interwoven with the common tapestry of humanity. Wertheim’s lush choreography is accompanied by original music by Itamar Doari, one of Israel’s most prominent percussion artists.
