A poetic dance story inspired by morning workouts from the 80s and the treasures that were kept by generations of women who passed their jewelry to the youngest ones. Decorations develop ultimate stories, which are often included internal conflicts, wars, and loss of relationships. This project is based on the stories of 9 women who or their mothers migrated to Israel. Pieces of jewelry were borrowed from about 20 women and were bought in flea markets in Tel Aviv.
