The Third Dance by Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor reflects upon themes of love, mortality and the need to be acknowledged. The performance touches on romanticism and its clichés – music by Mahler, flowers and a record player – but gradually uncovers a basic human need that lies beneath these cultural symbols.


The Third Dance is the second creation by Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor that is inspired by the work of the duo Liat Dror & Nir Ben Gal, who since the 1990s have shaped the face of Israeli contemporary dance and became an inspiration to a new generation of independent creators. Niv Sheinfeld danced for their company in the 90s for 6 years. A couple in life and on stage, Sheinfeld & Laor revisit The Third Dance by Dror & Ben Gal – a duo for a man and a woman, which became a seminal piece in Israeli dance, and contemplate on it from a contemporary stance.
