Enjoying the sun on your body,  the sound of the waves going deeper in your mind, connecting with harmony and nature?

Are you longing for the beach of your dreams? Enjoying the sun on your body, the sound of the waves going deeper and deeper into your brain, connecting with harmony and nature? Pull yourself together. Come to us, come to the MATKOT-beach. Nir De Volff / TOTAL BRUTAL will guarantee you crying babies, barking dogs and hundreds of beach ball players and naked bodies, coming closer and closer. We provide a daily supply of fresh garbage and the air is filled with the sweet sound of tractors building another luxury hotel just in walking distance.

MATKOT, the Hebrew word for beach ball, explores the social complexity of a day at the beach and our inconsistent behavior as visitors and users of nature. The new dance piece by Nir De Volff / TOTAL BRUTAL is about the need to relax, the moment when a dream falls apart and the process of collecting bits and pieces struggling to construct a new image.
