Choreographing Violence: Arkadi Zaides's Archive

Ruthie Abeliovich

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Israeli choreographer Arkadi Zaides's solo dance Archive investigates the choreography of transgressions performed by Israeli fundamentalist settlers against Palestinians in the West Bank. Screening fragments from a video archive documenting human rights violations in the occupied territories, this work invites Israeli spectators to sense the somatic impact of such actions and to consider the corporal resonance of the ongoing violence.
