Idea of this performance is based on Druzu society (which lives in north Izrael, Libya and Syria) folk dance „Debka“, which traditionally is men dance. It is expressive, intense and physically difficult dance. Mens` power and expression is transfered to women bodies, who play different rituals, as they would be Tribe. Energy is beating from lowermost till uppermost point. Folk motive in this performance is connection, movement and music are modern. Intercultural performance consist of there logical parts: beginning, fight and ritual, removing marks of nationality. Action of performance – nature cycle, life circle, which never ends, but usually we see only fragments of it. In this performance viewer will see fragments of life, which contains everything, that we manage envisage and sense.


Performance “Tribe” attracts by its` symbolic, fastens by energetic moves and change of music. Folk motives as connection moments of performance, gives mystery, unknown and dreadful tension for the piece.
