Sharon Fridman does not take movement for granted. Though it is his vehicle and medium, the Israeli-born, Madrid- based choreographer constantly questions the need to dance and its origins. Fridman, 35, is the founder and director of Compania Sharon Fridman, which will perform as part of the Suzanne Dellal Center’s Tel Aviv Dance Festival next week. The evening will consist of two parts: the duet Hasta Donde? (Until Where?) and a new work, Free Fall .
Fridman began his professional life in Israel, dancing with the Ido Tadmor Dance Company, Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and Vertigo Dance Company. He was then invited to join Mayumana on an extended European tour. “I left Israel in 2004 when I started to work with Mayumana,” he explains over Skype.
