In the first incarnation of my choreographic work during 1989-2007 I had created more than twenty works, presented at festivals and theaters all over Israel, Europe, USA and Japan.
I had created three works for Batsheva dance company, and many more with 'Anat Danieli dance company'. During this period of time I received the Gertrud Kraus Award 1989, Shades of Dance award 1990, Minister of Education Prize for Young Artists 1996, special award by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in 2006, and Rosenblum Award for Performing Arts from Tel Aviv Municipality 2007. In 2008 I gave myself the award of taking a five years brake from producing new works.
During 2009 , following a short choreography workshop that I had conducted, I established with Tal Gravinsky, Kelim choreography center in Bat Yam. In 2012 I returned to choreograph and perform in my own work.
In 2012, I created the piece 'Repetitions of parts from me' for museum gallery, in collaboration with Tammy Lebovich, and in 2014 'Movement material' in which I critically return to my own previous work and perform it.
MY current creative motivation is a desire to find new and enjoyable ways to create art and relationships with artists and spectators. I'm researching and exploring modes of productions that benefit the creative process and all partners involved.
