About the workshop:

A workshop with Yoav Bartel and Abigail Rubin that explores the boundaries between text and movement. Together we will create, develop and deepen our physical abilities within an improvised storyline. This workshop is based on tools from the world of theater improvisation. A great opportunity to experience the unique language of ‘Homemade ensemble’ that they employ in various pieces.



Totzeret Bait (Hebrew for “Homemade”) was founded as a theatre group in 2010 by Abigail Rubin and Yoav Bartel, and was officially recognized by the Ministry of Culture in 2021.


The group’s performances combine theatre and dance and are characterised by a blurring of boundaries between reality and fiction, stage and audience.


Throughout the last decade, the creators of Totzeret Bait directed no less than ten different productions such as “Shall We Dance”, which to this day is considered a groundbreaking production and it continues to meet diverse audiences in Israel and around the world. The performance has won 3 awards, including Performance of the Year at the Kipod HaZahav awards ceremony in 2010. Also they created “Ambush”, “Drop Dead”, “Yabalek”(won the Best Performance in the 2015 Akko Festival as well as Design and Choreography Awards) “The Electrician” “Amodo”, “13 Fragments” “Releasing the Jinx”, “Judoka” and the new production “Last Cigarette” – Apocalyptic Dance Theater.
