Dust uses dance movement to demonstrate the constantly varying state of dust, symbolizing the ups and downs in life. Dust is a fine substance that cannot be defined; it takes and loses form; it swirls; it rises to the air, it drops to the ground and swirls again. Like dust, we all could lose our ways, dissolve, connect and break apart, find each other and separate once more. Things formed of dust can be easily scattered, and then have to start all over again. PINTO and POLLAK have shown us a glimpse of life through the swirling dust In a unique movement style and theatrical choreography.
Since 1992 PINTO has been working with POLLAK, with whom she founded The Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak Dance Company. PINTO started formal dance training since young. She danced with Batsheva Dance Company and was invited twice to the American Dance Festival. POLLAK was trained as a classical actor and has appeared in films and television programs as well as taking leading roles in classical plays. Together, they have been involved in a variety of artistic endeavors - mainly the creation, direction, choreography and design of unique and award-winning dance performances for their company. Their productions have been presented and acclaimed in Israel as well as many other countries. In 2011, PINTO and POLLAK were given Israel's Ministry of Culture Award for Creation, for the works Toros and Rushes Plus. Their creation Wallflower received the Israel Critics Circle award as the "Best Dance Show of 2014” . The Company aims at making connections among various artistic disciplines to convey new stage creations informed by memories, longings, ideas and imagination.
“Virtuoso quality of dancers, along with wonderful illustrations. The creation Dust is an invitation to a re-quiem for a fairy-tale world, poetic and sad. It is about life, the forces of nature, and hope.” Haarets
