Initiated by artists and CCA Tel Aviv-Yafo Content Manager Muhammad Toukhy and Office Manager Guy Bernard Reichmann, “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 scene during the dramatic time of the pandemic and its aftermath. The seventh iteration of this program includes three works: When R U Coming Back Home?, a film that examines the connection between home and body by following four dancers from different countries inside their living spaces; Nevertheless, a piece that brings up questions regarding different forces of action of the daily choices made by humans; and Soon We’ll Make Lots of Love, a performance focused on two male characters depicted from a female point of view.
