An orchard of secrets.

Something fresh with a sweet taste.

Replenishing the hunger.

Bite.

Critics reviews:

"An emotional piece in a deeply poetical and sensual manner.  The metaphoric man/woman duet has an organic strength with its deep emotional and physical use of the body."

(Judges review from the AICC Choreography Competition 2008.)

 

"This is Eden. The sculpted physiques of Yoav Ginberg and Shani Katzman ripple through the apples unwavering. The apple as possession and passion forces a precision of movement. A tool for gesture, a castor for rolling body lines, a pivotal ballbearing, it is the central sensual stimulus of this engaging piece by Rachel Erdos."

(Mandy Richards, Resolution! Review)
