Hillel Kogan
Israel, Spain

The Israeli contemporary dance choreographer Hillel Kogan presents his new show “THISISPAIN”, where he is visiting as a tourist, the world of flamenco. “Western” art has been flirting with the exotic image of Spain for centuries. Kogan holds a poignant and inventive dialogue of text and movement, with the Israeli flamenco master, Mijal Natan. They debate questions of national, and artistic identity while casting doubt on the concept of identity in itself: in the spirit of the queer theory which holds that identity is not an essence but rather a performance, Kogan seeks to perform the “Spanish”.

Somewhere between choreographic performance and autobiographical confession, Hillel Kogan's artistic approach pushes the generic boundaries of the performing arts to deliver a memorable experience.
