PALE FIRE (excerpt) - Sigal Bergman

Created by: Sigal Bergman | Performed by: Lia Bergman, Sigal Bergman | Dramaturgy: Keren Ben-Altabet | Sound: Avner Amit | Set: Sharon Etgar | Costume: Tami Lebovits

PALE FIRE is an evening-length dance performance that draws inspiration from Vladimir Nabokov's extraordinary poem, Pale Fire (which is part of his 1962 novel of the same name). Through the prism of the poem I reflect on time as viewed at age 50 (my own age) and at 17, though the daughter of my identical twin sister, who joins me onstage. The piece examines how youth and maturity mix and collide in an intergenerational performance.

Pale fire was produced by kelim choreography center as part of its 2016 residency program, and with the support of Pais consul for culture and arts.
