Tr.IPP operates within Transit Dance and is a unique pathway for emerging contemporary dance artists from around the world.

Israel Aloni is an independent choreographer, educator, performer, writer and culture entrepreneur. Aloni studied dance at Bat Dor Dance Studios in Tel Aviv and Thelma Yellin School of the Arts, graduating with honours in 2001.

As a performer, Aloni danced a vast repertoire of globally acclaimed choreographers during their engagement with the Israel Ballet, Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company, “The Project” belonging to the Israel Opera and Odelya Kuperberg Dance Group. Between 2002 and 2017, Aloni created and performed a rich selection of repertoire with GöteborgsOperans Danskompani (Sweden) which was their home company for these 15 years.

In 2013-2014, Aloni was a guest artist with Sasha Waltz & Guests in Berlin, Germany. Alongside their career as a performer, Aloni has been choreographing, mentoring and teaching dance. They have worked around the world with both professionals and students of higher education in independent structures as well as in institutions such as Regionteater Väst (SE), Norrdans (SE), Sasha Waltz & Guests (DE), NAROPA (US), Sydney Dance Company (AU), Estonian National Ballet, Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre and MAPDance Chichester (UK), to name a few.

As an independent choreographer, Aloni has developed their own choreographic language which is also the core of their teaching method. Aloni’s practice is mainly derived of their fascination with the infinite creativity of the mind and fantasy, whilst utilising the body as a physical demonstration of the self – a medium for interaction with others and subjectively experiencing the world.

Moreover, their methodologies of creation and production are direct results of their desire to facilitate a reality in which individuals are liberated and encouraged to emancipate their subjective
artistic voice through actions and activities that reward the artists, their collaborators and the public.
