Yossi Berg & Oded Graf
You Look Like The Last Audience On Earth
You Look Like The Last Audience On Earth raises questions about the relevance and necessity of making art, while celebrating passion and love for dance. Yossi Berg & Oded Graf continue to explore the essence of what it means to be human – to love, to be excited, to fail, to dream, to long for something, to belong and to be estranged. They like to surface that which is evasive and undefined, and whose edges only art can touch.
Yossi & Oded are choreographers, dancers, artistic directors, and founders of Yossi Berg & Oded Graf Dance Theatre. They established their group in 2005 after having successful individual careers with companies including Batsheva Dance Company and DV8 Physical Theatre and have built a reputation for creating supremely physical, provocative, and poignant dance works. Their company tours extensively in prestigious festivals around the world including Montpellier Danse, American Dance Festival, The Joyce Theater, DansensHus Stockholm, SIDance South Korea. They have been Aerowaves artists and received Israel's Ministry of Culture Award for Outstanding Choreographers and the Rosenblum Prize for Artistic Excellence in the Performing Arts. The Company was featured in the movie LET’S DANCE! for ARTE channel and in various publications including The “Weizmann International Magazine of Science” and ”The New York Times.” Yossi Berg & Oded Graf Dance Theatre operates for the promotion and diffusion of the art of dance; it responds to the social realities of contemporary life, inspires deeper reflection, and offers hope and beauty. They teach extensively around the world, focusing on the next generation of dancers.
