Lisi Estaras and Ido Batash met in 2012 during the creation of Choeurs directed by Alain Platel. They found a strong sense of affinity in the materials and ideas and certain ways to approach movement and physical states. Occasionally while working in the studio together people will refer to them in an humorous way as “the Jewish connection”. These brought them to the question: Is there such a connection? What is the cause of our affinity?

In this project dancers/choreographers Lisi Estaras and Ido Batash question their ambiguous feelings towards their Jewish identity. Together with two other dancers and a soprano they try to find the essence of who they are as a (Jewish) collective.
