Memory Archive - Bat Yam
We sought to create an intimate connection with the city of Bat Yam, using personal
memories of women who immigrated to the city as a lens through which to view the urban
space. Rather than presenting a linear, homogeneous history, the piece aims to showcase
the present-day experiences of multiple local women narrators. The project is a part of
"Suggestions for the City" a collaboration between the artists and MoBY museum and the
Kelim Choreography Center in Bat Yam.

From the powers of construction and demolition, we use one another to gain strength and
through the power of the ensemble, we celebrate the body and mutuality. It is this spirit of
mutual support and resilience that lies at the heart of "No, Zeitgeist, a performance piece
created for the International Performance Conference and the Saint Petersburg festival.
Drawing on the imagery of monumental structures and Social Realism art, the work takes
these familiar forms and reimagines them in a local context, deconstructing and
reconstructing them in new and unexpected ways.
