Cobra Blonde

Shemesh’s most impressive work so far
Michael S. Zerban, O-Ton, April 2021

Thanks to this lightning-smart performance, a deeply sad core of carnival is presented, of which our school wisdom had not yet dreamed of.“
Martin Krumbholz, Süddeutsche Zeitung, June 2019


“A highly concentrated cabinet piece that revolves around the life of Orthodox Jewish women, but at the same time about breaking out of confirming, questioning and reflecting on norms, rules… In short, “Atara” represents rather a study of the soul, which, although it also deals with the subject externally, poetically mirroring it in a touchingly minimalist choreography… an internal view set in motion…”
Christian Oscar Gazsi Laki, Westdeutsche Zeitung, May 2019.



Whoever was in this place, whoever was behind the fence, their femininity remains damaged – this is the conclusion of this production, in which Shemesh revolves around her explosive topic in a very personal way… A piece that foreshadows how much the end of naivety is also politically consequential.”
Nicole Strecker,, November 2015

Before Morning

Wildwood Flowers

“Wildwood Flowers, created and choreographed by Reut Shemesh, is a gripping, edgy, and evocative movement piece”.
