Yossi Berg & Oded Graf’s newest work ‘Come Jump with Me’ serves as a dialogue between the choreographers and Israel, the country where they live, and the identity crisis in which they find themselves.  In the explosive political and social reality of Israel, this work indeed pushes the limits and “plays with fire,” both literally and visually. Set in an imaginative playground involving different levels of consciousness, the performers move among personal and collective figures of history in a fantastic adventure, while trying to understand what future they are marching toward and their own definitions of “holiness.” The audience is invited to join them on an emotional rollercoaster – from moments that are ecstatic and poetic, to moments examining the relevancy and significance of creating art in the urgent political reality of Israel.
