In the Spotlight
Nir de Volff
Born and raised in Petah Tikva, Nir de Volff first entered the world of dance through Folk Dance. He was spotted for his talent and energy and was accepted to one of Israel’s most prestigious dance schools. After being chosen for a production of Pina Bausch’s Dance Company at the Tel Aviv Opera House, Nir set out to explore the world of European dance-theater. His path led him to Berlin where he has been living and working for the past 15 years. In 2007, Nir founded his own company, TOTAL BRUTAL. His latest production, “Come As You Are” opened to critical acclaim at Dock11 in Berlin. Besides creating and producing his shows, Nir has established himself as an internationally sought-after teacher. He teaches his movement method Use/Abuse to curious students all over the world – from dancers in New York City to kick boxers in Warsaw, lawyers in Tokyo, opera singers in Frankfurt, visual artists in Rotterdam, and lady boys in Bangkok.
Over the last years, Germany has become an important destination for many young Israelis seeking opportunities to learn, grow and find success. Many of these Israeli artists have gone on to assume leading roles as directors, professors, and respected conductors, musicians, singers, dancers, painters, and actors in Germany. These men and women represent some of Israel’s finest international ambassadors whose contributions have made lasting impressions on the German cultural landscape.
The Germany Israel Cultural Foundation e.V. seeks to fortify cultural relations between Germany and Israel, help maintain the vitality of the culturally and historically significant of this relationship, by promoting cultural exchange and supporting the next generation of outstanding Israeli artists.
