Since the beginning of their partnership in 2005 (after having incredibly successful individual careers including companies such as, Batsheva Dance Company, DV8 Physical Theatre, etc), this dynamic duo has built a reputation for creating supremely physical, provocative, and poignant dance works. Their company is touring extensively in the most prestigious festivals around the world (Montpellier Danse, American Dance Festival, The Joyce Theater NYC, DansensHus Stockholm, SIDance South Korea, to name but a few); they create for opera houses and won numerous choreography awards. Yossi & Oded offer new ways of looking at dance and exploring performance. Yossi & Oded were Aerowaves artists; received Israel's Ministry of Culture Award for Outstanding Choreographers and in 2016 were awarded the Rosenblum Prize for Artistic Excellence in the Performing Arts. The choreographers’ rich repertory includes 10 evening length works and many short works. They teach extensively around the world, focusing on the next generation of dancers. The Company was featured in the movie LET’S DANCE! for ARTE channel and in various publications including ​The Weizmann International Magazine of Science and ​The New York Times.
