Hi, can I help you? by Efrat Rubin, collaboration with Iris Mualem and Uri Levinson, is a multidisciplinary presentation that uses contemporary materials and whose connections create a sequence between science fiction and near reality. In doing so, the piece exposes diverse mechanisms that create a parallel between machine language and choreography, stressing the complex relationship between mechanical and mechanism, between human and humanization.
