Roaches


ďÖ and keep you in bed when you have to go and cry like a baby when you finally do and get rid of the roaches and buy you presents you donít want and take them away again and ask you to marry me and you say no again but keep on asking because though you think I donít mean it I do always have from the first time I asked you and wander the city thinking itís empty without you and want what you want and think Iím losing myself but know Iím safe with you and tell you the worst of me and try to give you the best of me because you donít deserve any less and answer your questions when Iíd rather not tell you the truth when I really donít want toÖĒ† (Sarah Kane).

†The piece is about the nature of our quest for someone to love and someone or something to believe in.

“A highly intriguing piece…an observation full of humor with a hint of bitterness”

 

Ruth Eshel, Ha’aretz 2007

“The duets are excellent, cheeky, jumpy, full of gesture…the dancers are great and the movement vocabulary is absorbing”
