Roy Assaf’s all male trio, The Hill, which won first prize in the 27th International Competition For Choreographers in Hanover, Germany, is based on the Hebrew song Givat Hatahmoshet–about Jerusalem’s Ammunition Hill, the site of bitter battles in the Six Day War. Ate9 Dance Company’s Exhibit B explores the difficulty that the Israeli conflict brings to daily lives. Choreographer Danielle Agami continues her collaboration with composer Omid Walizadeh with a mashup of hip hop and Iranian music.

Watch a clip from Ate9 Dance Company’s Exhibit B.
