Pigulim: A dance work by Ella Rothschild

In Pigulim, a cultural narrative unfolds against the backdrop of a meal at a long dining table where three characters suffer from unbearable loneliness and battle their way between life and death. Each character travels between their individual materialistic being and their consciousness, revealing their essential humanity in relation to existence and the quest for happiness. In Pigulim, the ceremony of the meal allows space for banality and fantasy, fear and desire, and class struggle.  Rothschild's adeptness at weaving intimacy and intricacy amplifies the role each individual occupies in the group and smartly asks who is absent and who is being missed.

Ella Rothschild is an award-winning choreographer, multi-disciplinary artist, and dancer. Rothschild has danced with Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak Dance Company, and Batsheva Dance Company under the artistic direction of Ohad Naharin. Currently, Rothschild performs with Crystal Pite/Kidd Pivot. Since 2010, Rothschild has created her own work in collaboration with artists from different disciplines. Ella is the recipient of a 2019 residency at Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC) and she was named an artist in residence in the Suzanne Dellal Centre's inaugural residency program.
