Led by artist and CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo Office Manager Guy Bernard Reichmann, alongside artist and Content Manager Mona Benyamin, “out-of-office” is a series of events to be presented in the Marc Schimmel Multipurpose Gallery. Focused on time-based practices such as video, dance, and performance, and in line with the multidisciplinary mission of the Center, “o-o-o” was conceived as a way to nurture the domestic scene.

CALL TO ARMS (2021) by PentHouss is an immersive performance that uses dance, sound, light, and optics to explore themes of governmental power, control, and social unrest, and re-flects on the complex relationship between agents of power and the civilians they supposed-ly protect. The piece is performed by six dancers dressed in real riot police uniforms who move through a series of crowd control tactics lifted directly from police training in a chore-ography that also draws from krumping – a dance style informed by street fighting. The performance takes place in a mirrored hexagon, which creates the illusion of an infinite armed force.

CALL TO ARMS was created by PentHouss’ Anna Lann and Yonathan Trichter, in collaboration with choreographer Ekin Bernay, and is performed by Yotam Baruch, Ronen Braunstein, Gal Gorfung, Harel Grazutis, Reches Itzhaky, and Tom Nissim. Set design by Michael Sabo and PentHouss; light design by Hagai Moshe Ron and PentHouss; graphic design by Danielle Erenberg; production assistance by Gal Karmona. The work was created with the support of Mifal HaPais and the Yehoshua Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, Tel Aviv. Special thanks to Iris Rywkind Ben Zour.
