    RINA SCHENFELD(Israel), “SWANS”,Contemporary Dance (Solo) (50mins)
    RINA SCHENFELD(Israel) is one of the foremost dance artists in Israel. She first established her reputation in the sixties, as a principal dancer of the Batsheva Dance Company, where she was engaged from its foundation in 1963 until 1979. 

    Schenfeld works with a range of physical objects – threads, sticks, poles, rubber, strips, cubes and fabrics – in creating solo “tours de force” of startling dramatic impact. Anna Kisselgoff wrote of her in the New-York Times: “Miss Schenfeld transformations, take on a philosophical meaning, raising questions about essences…She keeps the human figure always visible and she is, as ever, a serenely beautiful dancer of great intensity, the magnetic focus of attention. Each flutter or flicker of her fingers seems invested with meaning of some sort, never literal and all the more tantalizing because of its mystery”. She continues to create & perform extensively both in Israel & around the world.
