Israeli duo explore day and night

Two dancers from Clipa Theater, an award-winning Israeli dance company known for its wild and expressive performances, will perform in Tokyo Sept. 23 and 24 and Fukuoka on Oct. 1.

The program will feature solo pieces by Idit Herman and Dmitry Tyulpanov, who jointly founded the company in 1995. Tyulpanov will perform "Iron, moss" and Herman "The punishment of lust."

The first piece symbolizes the daylight world and people's lives there, while the second symbolizes a world ruled by darkness and the gloomy side of human existence. The two pieces are designed to be taken as a single show.

Herman, born in Tel Aviv in 1971, joined Israel's flagship contemporary dance company, Batsheva, at the age of 17. Tyulpanov, born in Leningrad in 1966, studied acting and music at Leningrad University.

The Tokyo performances start at 7 p.m. and will take place in the basement studio of Session House (158 Yarai-cho, Shinjuku-ku), a few minutes' walk from Exit 1 of Kagurazaka subway station. Advance tickets are 3,500 yen and can be obtained from Session House at (03) 3266-0461. A map is available at www.session-house.net
