Zaides has made himself known over the past decade as a bold, innovative and socially aware choreographer. His most recent works Quiet and Land Research explore socio-political themes. Moves Without Borders is in many ways the natural progression of the overall statement made in Zaides' performances, one that reaches past the narrow scope of daily life and yearns for further communication. The culmination of months of work was meant to take place last week, with performances scheduled in Tel Aviv.
