FEED is a project where Ella Rothschild has an encounter with a group of dancers from Cia Eliane Fetzer de Danca Contemporanea (Curitiba, Brazil) as part of the Brazil/Israel Project.

The work deals with the similarities and differences in the behavior of people in relation to social conventions. FEED investigates perceptions of social conventions in different cultures. The piece lingers on the less comfortable moments that people may face during their lifetime, and blurs the lines between what is right and what is wrong. In this process, Ella created with the dancers a collage of images that integrate the elements existing in every community: Death, madness, joy, competitiveness, grief, curiosity, imitations, despair, yearning sadness, anxiety, and fear.
