Edmond Russo and Shlomi Tuizer (Affari Esteri) | EMBRACE at La MaMa

In embrace, two men face each other constrained in their search for different forms of identification. In an investigation of their variable relation, poetic notions are employed, from a lovers’ narrative to duplicity, from a social body to a perceptive body, and of the other as witness, mirror, support, and companion. Choreographer-performers Edmond Russo and Shlomi Tuizer invited two New York artists into the creative process, poet Christina Clark and musician Oren Bloedow. This four-part composition questions the juxtaposition of these different languages creating a symbolic receptacle for disparate artistic voices, a choreographic journey of relation coming into being and a reflection on the existence of one through another.
