Uri is a graduate of MASPA (kibbutz Ga’aton Dance Workshop), Kelim Choreography Center (Israel), and the MA choreography program MASTER EXERCE in Montpellier France, at ICI-CCN, (artistic director – Christian Rizzo).
Uri’s works can be situated on the threshold between choreography and performance, and usually explore the notion of Liveness in live performance, through choreographed and un-choreographed movement, through different relationships and constructions with the audience, the performers, and the performance itself.
