Israel Aloni Independent choreographer, educator, performer, writer & provocateur.
Their choreographic work has been presented around the world. They have been continuously developing a powerful artistic voice which transcends boarders and truly captivates the audience.
After watching Aloni’s work, CATHARSES, in Copenhagen, the Danish author and critic, Michael Svennevig wrote: “It felt as if I was seeing contemporary dance for the first time, as if it were a brand new fresh language”
Aloni’s work often addresses social-political topics and masterfully converses with the public discourse, such examples include; HERE THERE YET NOWHERE from the international co-production GODLIKE (2016), where Aloni interrogated the impact of fanaticism on sanity, #GHETTO (2017) they addressed the distractive effect of labels and tags on compassion and solidarity, and My Body My Nation (2019) where Aloni attempts to decolonise their own non-white, non-binary and non-conforming physical body from concepts, philosophies and behaviours which have been forced upon it.
As a performer for nearly two decades, Aloni created and performed a vast repertoire of globally acclaimed choreographers such as Sasha Waltz, Mats Ek, Wim Vadekaybus and Club Guy And Roni to name a few.
Aloni is the Artistic Director and Co-Founder of ilDance, an independent contemporary dance organisation based in Gothenburg, Sweden; the architect and international project manager of International Contemporary Dance Collective (iCoDaCo) which is co-founded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
