Alpha

Choreography: Yotam Peled

Alpha is an intense, highly physical and theatrical dance performance that explores acts of domination and submission and a transformation of gender roles. The piece takes place in a parallel universe, in which the biblical narrative of creation has been altered – Eve has never shared the apple with Adam, resulting in a dark, matriarchal existence. The five individuals, who carry the story, each have a different role and approach to power and freedom. They collide in hope of releasing themselves from oppression and eventually a rave is manifested, a catharsis, a rare opportunity to regain lost paradise for a brief moment. Alpha is inspired by experiences in the techno clubs of Berlin, an inclusive space for the underdogs, in which contrasting concepts such as life and death, darkness and purity, pleasure and pain, coexist.
