Is humanity still aching, confused, lamenting and waiting for The Messiah? Are we prepared for The One? An international ballet production, inspired by the creation of J. S. Bach, which is considered sacred for the Christian world.
'As an Israeli Jewish choreographer, son of Holocaust survivors, I aim to build a bridge through this choreography between nations and religions. In this new world, where everyone is Jesus and Jesus is one of us…' Tamir Ginz
Kamea Dance Company Artistic Director and Resident Choreographer
After completing his dance training in Israel and abroad, Tamir Ginz performed with the Haifa Ballet and was a dancer in the 'Batsheva Dance Company' under the artistic direction of Ohad Naharin (1991–1992).
Ginz was the resident choreographer for the Bat-Dor Dance Company in Tel-Aviv and the main contemporary dance teacher in the Bat-Dor studios of Dance (1991–2001). His first creation for 'Bat-Dor', 'Platform 1', won him the 1997 Albert Gaubier award for choreography in Denmark. In 2002 he left Bat-Dor Tel-Aviv to establish Kamea Dance Company with Daniella Schapira.
Ginz's work combines an intriguing dance movement style and a personal statement that produce strong dramatic pieces. Ginz returned to the stage to dance with Kamea in 'Secret Garden' and 'Limelight'.
Ginz won a B.A. degree in English Linguistics and Literature and Sociology from The Haifa University and a teaching diploma for dance from The Kibbutz State Seminar College. Ginz taught contemporary dance in many of Israel's leading schools.
