The best place to run into choreographic duo Niv Shenfeld and Oren Laor these days is probably Ben- Gurion International Airport. Be it on the way out or returning from a tour abroad of one of the five productions they are currently running, the two spend a considerable amount of time nibbling croissants and sipping coffee in the airport’s atrium. This week, Shenfeld and Laor returned from the US, where they presented the quartet Cowboy at Atlanta’s 7 Stages Theater. This tour was one of many in 2016, the busiest year yet for Shenfeld and Laor.
“We are currently running Cowboy, Ship of Fools, Big Mouth, Two Room Apartment and You Happy Puppet,” explains Shenfeld.
