Culture shock in hindsight, Aftershock reflects the impact that emigrating from Israel to the United States in the 1980s had on the artistic development of Artistic Director Ronen Koresh.

“Israel is a huge part of my life,” says Koresh. “It’s what defines me as a person—the culture, the tension, the love of life, the passion, the heat, the music and food, the complexity of racial and cultural integration. But my work is Middle Eastern culture coupled with American experience. Culture shock shakes your core. Then you live, you create, shaken up.”

Through the powerful athleticism and lyrical lines of the famously synchronized Koresh Company dancers, Aftershock illustrates the dangers and difficulties of building artistic identity in a new place—the reverberation of hostile receptions, the challenge of gaining acceptance, and the risk of losing oneself to the expectations of a new environment.
