Info
Ohad Fishof is an artist and musician working in a diverse range of fields including sound, dance, video,performance and installation. Fishof began his artistic career as a musician with the pioneering Israeli art-pop band Nosei Hamigbaat. He later moved to compose music for dance, performance and art installations while at the same time, expanding his artistic endeavors to other media. In 1997 he received an MA in Dance from Laban Center London. He spent the following years creating dance and performance pieces as well as sound and video installations in London, where he was then based. His performance collaboration with Uri Katzenstein, Home, was presented as part of the 2001 Venice Biennial. Over the last fifteen years, Fishof has been consistently expanding his ever- growing body of work – a difficult-to-categorize continuum of idiosyncratic time-based art, ranging from improvised music to site-specific performance work, video animation, installations, dance pieces and soundtrack work. His latest solo performance evening, a double bill that includes his most recent performance work HD, was premiered as part of Print Screen New Media Festival in 2014. His latest choreographic collaboration with Noa Zuk, AN OLD WOMAN PICKING A STONE FROM THE GROUND AND CARRYING IT BACK TO HER HOUSE, was commissioned and premiered in 2014 by Singapore’s Frontier Danceland. Fishof is also a long term collaborator of Batsheva Dance Company and have for many years worked closely with choreographer Ohad Naharin as a soundtrack designer, music director and dramaturge.
