Yossi Berg and Oded Graf
Choreographers Yossi Berg and Oded Graf started collaborating in 2005, and they have since built a reputation for work that is supremely physical, sometimes provocative, and by turns poignant and witty. Having performed with world-renowned troupes ranging from Batsheva Dance Company and DV8 Physical Theatre to others, they mix their masterful physicality with their dynamic research of theater, text, and voice, responding to the social and political realities of contemporary life.
Besides performing regularly at the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv, Yossi and Oded have toured their works to prestigious festivals and theaters including Montpellier Danse, the American Dance Festival, Madrid En Danza, Stockholm's Kultur Festival, the Place Theater in London, La MaMa in New York City, White Bird Dance in Portland, Sophiensaele in Berlin, Lausanne Danse in Switzerland, the Belgrade Dance Festival in Serbia and SIDance in South Korea, to name but a few.
Their choreography has been commissioned by and included in the repertory of prominent troupes including Batsheva Ensemble in Israel; Introdans in Holland; Donlon Dance Company and Staatstheater Kassel in Germany; Tanzkompagnie Theater St. Gallen in Switzerland; Company E in the U.S.; Aura Dance Company in Lithuania; Polish Dance Theater in Poland; Belgrade Drama Theater in Serbia; and TND Company in Spain.
Yossi and Oded’s compelling choreography has garnered them numerous honors at home and abroad, including Israel’s Ministry of Culture Award for Outstanding Choreographers in 2013.
