About Michal Gil

Michal Gil is a dancer, performer and choreographer, born in Haifa, Israel in 1983.

Michal's unique physical appearance inspired many creators and is the basis of her own creation.

As a dancer and performer, working with choreographers and theatre companies Michal participates mostly in multiplayer projects where her unique look has been examined in relation to the group or to what is common in society. She often embodies the image of the little girl or the little boy. Participating either as the performer in a group of dancers or the dancer in a group of actors.

As a choreographer, Michal mostly creates solo performances where she examines her body in relation to her inner world, and through her body, she shows her thoughts and dreams. The entirety of Michal's work as a dancer/performer and choreographer gives a broad perspective on the "other" body, on the stage and in real life.

In 2020 Michal started to make her own videos, combining dance with music by Maya Felixbrodt and creating fine art alongside her dance creation.
