Wrapped is an urban legend combining humor and poetics happening in a visually-rich imaginary world. Wrapped was created in 1998 and won many illustrious reviews and several awards, including the prestigious “Bessie” The New York Dance and performance Award, 1999-2000.

“Inbal Pinto, a young Israeli choreographer with defiant charm, came onto the program of the 8th Lyon Dance Biennale like a breath of fresh air. Her universe is elfin and sparkling, studded with humor and lucky finds. Her work abounds with repercussions of the movements, swiftly readjusted and modified. The eight dancers assembled around her interpret her work with palpable jubilance… three pieces that bring together a marvel.” Agnes Benoist | Lyon Figaro
