SPOTLIGHT is an original Arts By The People video series which highlights and promotes artists from a variety of mediums who are doing unique work in their creative fields. We are working with one-of-a-kind, innovative artists and capturing the essence of their work flow and thought process through intimate documentary-style short films.

In the debut production of this series series, we turned the camera on Israeli dancer Maya Resheff. She reflects upon the “connection between body, material and space.” Maya’s movement transcends traditional boundaries and represents themes such as “body versus non-body”, transience, “borderlessness.” She uses her body as her most vital instrument and tool in further developing her movement research.
