Yotam Peled was born in 1989, in a Kibbutz in the north of Israel. Since childhood he has practiced fine arts, athletics, and Capoeira.
At the age of 21, after finishing service in the Israeli defense forces, he began dancing, and later on pursued higher education in contemporary circus. In 2015 he relocated to Berlin, and since then he has been working as a freelance performer for several European choreographers, among them Maura Morales (Dusseldorf), Yann L'hereux (Montpellier), Troels Primdahl (Aarhus/Berlin), Jill Crovisier (Luxembourg), Mitia Fedotenko (Montpellier).
In the last years he has been creating his own work which was presented in festivals and venues in Israel, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Vietnam, and had received several awards.
Yotam’s main research topic is the relation between gender roles, sexual identity and power structures in modern society, and uses choreographed, highly physical movement, to explore it. In August 2019 his new creation ‘ALPHA’ will premiere in Trauma bar und kino, Berlin.
