PHOTOGRAPHY. Daniel Bar | MUSIC. Lior Pinsky | PRODUCER. Daphna Mero and Yael Mero
Having a Thonet chair in his hands and with careful and careful steps, Professor Amos Hetz enters the space of the Academy of Advanced Studies Polonsky. At 83, he re-danced his movement composition "4.33", created as a tribute to the avant-garde musical piece by John Cage. Hetz is one of the most prominent students of Noa Eshkol, who created the notation of the Eshkol-Wachman movement. Like her, she is an innovative revolutionary found on the banks of the Israeli Dance. In the film, a Doco-Dance poetry that unites fragments of dance and the artistic statements of Hetz, deals with new perspectives on dance, art and the meanings we give for chairs and seated.
