This new original dance piece by choreographer Noa Wertheim revolves around the individual's inner wish to be whole whilest being challenged constantly by a fragmented reality within the personal, existential and spiritual realms of ones being. One. One & One reflects both the internal and external worlds whilst paying attention to the echo as reflected from different perspectives; the piece develops the metaphoric relationship between far and near and self and the other.

Artistic Director / Choreographer & Co-Founder of the Vertigo Dance Company
Noa completed her dance studies at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance and is an Honorary Fellow of the Academy. In 1992 together with Adi Shaal, founded the Vertigo Dance Company, based in Jerusalem and at the Vertigo Eco Art Village where she lives with Shaal and their three sons.
The internationally acclaimed Vertigo Dance Company has begun its third decade with an impressive repertoire of original works choreographed by her.
Beyond her contribution to cultural life in Israel, Wertheim's unique approach promotes social change by creating an artistic connection with the community and the environment. This has been evident in the Vertigo Dance Education School, in the Vertigo Eco Art Village, founded in Kibbutz Netiv Halamed-Heh in 2007, and in The Power of Balance, a dance program for inclusion of the disabled.
