Rami Be’er, House Choreographer and Artistic Director of Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company (KCDC), has crafted a movement aesthetic that draws on both European modern dance idioms and contemporary American influences. Unapologetically Israeli, his movement is fiercely unbridled, with a spirit of experimentation and a commitment to forging community, while maintaining subtle and not so subtle political and social messages in his choreography.

IS ALL CHOREOGRAPHY ART?
Your Answer?...CLICK HERE
- Kitty L. - No, I don't think every piece of choreography is art. I don't believe every dancer is an artist. I believe that "Art" can stand the test of time, where as some work can barely stand for one showing.
- Bonnie S. - If I was from another planet studying humans, and saw choreography as a human design of bodies in space, I could lump it together as choreography and call it ART. I struggle though to get passed my elite biases about what is good, or bad dance.
- Etta H. - Yes, it is the act and the art of sequencing. However, if it is a “good art” – that is subjective.
