Ella Rothschild

BAC Space Resident Artist

Choreographer Ella Rothschild (Tel Aviv, Israel) begins a new creative process stemming from the question of how personal story can reveal broader phenomena about society. The work lingers on common images that define the physical and emotional environment in which we conduct ourselves, and leaves room for distinct characters who move the narrative forward through tensions, conflicts, and untenable situations.
