MART is pleased to announce our participation in the DAP Festival, the International Dance Festival that will take place in the charming city of Pietrasanta, Italy, from June 25 to July 8, 2023
At the Festival, MART will present a new duet Hard to Tell by Israeli choreographer Shahar Binyamini. In his new work, Binyamini continues to explore the nature of growth and its embodiment, at different levels, in the dancing body. The duet will be performed by Paris Opera Ballet dancers Marion Barbeau and Antonin Monié.
Additionally, MART supports the participation of Tel Aviv-based dancer Anna Freedman-Okuneva in the educational program DAP College.
Shahar Binyamini danced with Batsheva Dance Company from 2006 to 2013. As an assistant for Ohad Naharin, Shahar Binyamini works with dance companies around the world, including Paris Opera Ballet, Ballet BC, Nederlands Dans Theater, Compañía Nacional de Danza, Finish National Opera, Gothenburg Opera House, Hannover Ballet and Bordeaux National Ballet.
Anna Freedman-Okuneva is a graduate of The Bolshoi Ballet Academy. She has previously danced with the Ballet Company of the Bolshoi Theater and Stanislavsky Ballet. In 2023, Anna left Russia and moved to Tel Aviv.
