Salt # 3
Alona Harpaz’s video Salt # 3 is a fascinating experience relating to Israeli folk dance. Israeli folk dance answers some of the parameters required to define a Folk dance such as being performed by people with little or no professional training, but other than this characteristic none of the attributes related to the term appear in any of them.Launch Circle1

The “Salt” trilogy was shot in Israel during 2014–16, with episodes loosely connected through Ehud Harpaz, the artist’s father, in various functions: in a folk dance gathering, as a veteran paratrooper and as a tour guide. Salt is inherently present in all three, whether literally or metaphorically. The films can be shown separately or as an edited sequence.
