SAMBA AND TEARS | Sivan Rubinstein

SAMBA AND TEARS | Sivan Rubinstein

Sivan Rubinstein is a contemporary dance choreographer and was in residence with Dance4 working on her new work SAMBA AND TEARS from 7-10 April 2015.

SAMBA AND TEARS is a dance production that explores our consumption of media-packaged current affairs. As they relentlessly seek our attention, we willfully succumb to the never-ending floods of processed information that wash over us. With an ensemble of 4 dancers, a sound score composed of dozens of broadcast headlines, interviews, sports clips and live music, we bring you the news - as you have never seen or heard it before.

'I wanted to thank Dance4 on behalf of SAMBA AND TEARS for the week residency in Nottingham  This week will have a big impact on the development and the quality of SAMBA AND TEARS and allowed us all to to be together all in one place, and create in this inspiring space. We can’t wait to return. Thank you Dance4'
- Sivan Rubinstein

Sivan graduated from Trinity Laban Conservatoire and moved quickly to direct performances at Sadler’s Wells, the Richard Attenborough Centre, The Place, Denmark’s On the Hill Festival and Hangarfest Festival Italy in addition to various venues in Israel, where she is recognised as an Exceptional Artist by the Israeli cultural ministry. Rubinstein’s work draws mainly from central current issues and is deeply rooted in collaborations with film and music artists.

SAMBA AND TEARS premieres in its full length on April 23rd at London's JW3.
