David Israel Katz squeezes spiritual ascent out of total irreverence, bending spacetime with voice, movement, text and image. His Jewish art project, foreignfire, unleashes through scored performances, improvisations, installations, and recorded media the aesthetic heat potentized in heritage ritual formulations. A versatile singer, David appears in recordings by Brett Carson (Mysterious Descent) and Hauswasser (2) among others. His work appeared in such places as Tectonics (Tel Aviv), Musrara Mix (Jerusalem), and Studio Venezia (Venice Biennale). David studied Composition and Improvisation at Mills College; Ha’aretz described him as “an uber-performer,” and his art-ritual, THRESH, was praised by Jewish Currents as “an intense game you can lose yourself in.”
