In a 40 minute encounter, Zaides sets out to frame the past four years of creative work, in which he has created four works (one is still in progress). In his work, Zaides seeks to map the movement of the human body in the local reality of ongoing conflict and emergency in Israel/Palestine, and thereby to connect the political and personal spheres.

A response to 'Dig Deep' - A new production by Arkadi Zaides 2013
In January 2013 Arkadi Zaides was invited to take part in the Aire De Jeu project, at Les Subsistances, an artistic research center in Lyon, France. In this project four choreographers were invited to create a stage work using music by contemporary composers played live on stage. Zaides will join choreographers from France, Portugal and Congo who were asked to choose a piece by the New York based composer Julia Wolfe.
Wolfe's music is distinguished by an intense physicality and a relentless power that pushes performers to extremes and demands attention from the audience. For his performance Zaides chose Wolfe's score for a string quartet named 'Dig Deep', which, as hinted in its name, generates an intense sonic movement inwards. In his physical response to the quartet, Zaides focuses on a state of ongoing oscillation, examining the tension between restlessness and stability in his body. By focusing on this tension Zaides wishes to 'dig deep' and explore somatic responses to his personal experience of immigration, homelessness and an ongoing desire to bridge between different communities in Israel. Zaides offers the audience a kinesthetic, non-narrative practice and continues to challenge both the physical and conceptual identity of his work.
