Grounded and organic yet driven and unyielding, Vertigo's dancers attack the contemporary movement with an honesty that engages audience members to feel the vulnerability of emotions being unpacked onstage.

One of Israel's most highly regarded contemporary dance companies; Vertigo takes the viewer on an exciting and challenging journey into unfamiliar territories with every performance. The company strives to bring people closer together and touch them through the language of the body and movement, which can be felt from their powerful performances. The March performance of Vertigo Dance Company at Playhouse Square will feature, their new work "One. One & One" created by Artistic Director, Noa Wertheim. The piece was inspired by the fifth chapter of the Yoma Tractate and features the artists dancing among soil scattered on the stage, giving the audience a full sensory experience. The performance exudes internal struggle between individual wishes versus social unity and showcases the different directions that the dancers can take. The movement style of Vertigo's dancers will awe audiences as Wertheim challenges the limits of the body through dance.

Vertigo takes the viewer every time to a new or an unexpected, exciting and challenging journey into unfamiliar territories. Vertigo represents international standards of artistic excellence, with a social and community touch.

We see Vertigo as a messenger of Israeli Art at its best, at home and abroad, that comes to bring people closer together and touch them through the language of the body. As such, the company combines, in addition to its performances, master classes, workshops, co-productions with other companies from around the world and invites artists from different fields to create together with the company.

The community branch of Vertigo includes the Dance School, which operates alongside the company and enables everyone to study dance; the Vertigo Dance Workshop, which provides a professional framework for training dancers. Performances and workshops for every community, including the disabled, out of the belief that the dance language of Vertigo is unique yet universal and challenges the limits of the body.
