CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo and HaZira Performance Art Arena are proud to co-present untitled, a new performance piece by May Zarhy. Through a free interpretation of the work of American Minimal artist Dan Flavin, known for his use of fluorescent light, untitledcontinues Zarhy’s exploration of the possible relations between body and sound, and between choreography and visual arts. Through her collaboration with musician Elad Bardes, the artist creates a resonating space of images and sound, where the two elements are in continuous juxtaposition, moving between states of immersion, diversion, and at times audiovisual clashes. The work attempts to break the language barriers, diving into the sensual and physical realms. Based on a series of recordings of bodily activities, that are sampled and recomposed in real-time, and through an aesthetic proposition, untitledcan be considered a “live sculpture” or a “3D painting.” Such experience, which is truly physical, triggers the viewer’s senses and demands full presence and sensitivity, making the audience becoming an imminent part of the ritual. Through this structure, the piece raises questions regarding the mystical, the physical and the unknown. untitled is created and performed by May Zarhy, with music by Elad Bardes; space and light objects by Boaz Beja Gilad, clothes designed by Ruti de Vries; special thanks to Sigal Bergman (“external eye”) and Rotem Greenberg (intern).


This event was produced by HaZira Performance Art Arena and premiered as part of Diver Festival 2019 and it is supported by Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts, the Municipality of Tel Aviv-Yafo – Arts and Culture Division and The Yehoshua Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts, Tel Aviv; the performance contains nudity and some sections are performed in complete darkness.
