Born in the seaside of Haifa, Israel, Niv trained and taught Capoeira, acrobatics, and Afro-Brazilian dance before becoming a contemporary dance Artist. Niv has been a dancer at the Johannes Wieland Dance Company of Staatstheater Kassel, where he collaborated with choreographers Johannes Wieland (DE), Maxine Doyle (UK), Lenka Vagnerová (CZ), Helder Seabra (PT), and collaborated as a freelancer with Evangelos Poulinas (GR) and Ryan Mason (US), among others. Since 2017 Niv started creating short dance videos for b12, a Contemporary Dance festival in Berlin, which sparked a growing interest in film-making, visual story telling and editing as choreography. Niv is fascinated by humans, creation and the political function of body x choreography, a fan of empathy, and a lover of the desert.
A struggling man stumbles upon unexpected support from a nameless person while mysterious purple smoke starts to shroud their encounter.
What will it take to change your patterns 180°? When time blends and distracts now with later, how many laters later will you realize your new dawn? Who decides our thoughts- us or them? In our world, not far from now, a man caught in the rat race stumbles upon unexpected support from a nameless person. Under, over, or beyond, a faceless world is pulsating purple smoke unto the other. The two characters are caught in a struggle with ambiguous intentions as the realms entangle offering new horizons to be found.
