PROJECTS

Alvin is currently working on a solo entitled, "Alefbet." a contemporary dance work that studies the notion of intimacy relative to the cycle of addiction (Emotional Trigger, Craving, Ritual, Using, Guilt). What is intimacy? How do we share it within oneself or with others? What turns us on? In what ways can the levels of pleasure and pain contribute to this addiction cycle? Delving into my personal memoirs living in Israel, I approach this physical study in conjunction with my knowledge and vocabulary of Gaga.
