A work by Sivan Rubinstein
Dance No 2°
Dance No 2° takes you on a timeless journey. Earthy, Minimalist, and Powerful. It redefines our connection to Earth, a dance which brings you home.
Rediscover how human existence is influenced by the water, land, and elements we live with, Dance No 2° is set in an infinite landscape of waves and rolling hills, hypnotic oceans and vivid deserts.
Lead by its cinematic soundtrack, a minimal setting, and danced with raw and sustainable fashion, the piece examines how the land we live on and the planet we inhabit shapes us. Our body becomes a planet, and the planet our home.
Dance No 2° is the culmination of Sivan Rubinstein’s 3 year research project, Generation Z, as Artist in Residence of Kings’ College London. Working with Gen Z students from London, China and communities around the world, Sivan’s work explores ideas from migration to climate, and our impact on the future. DN2° refers to the 2° tipping point in the rise of global temperatures.
