Gabrielle Neuhaus was born in Switzerland and is an independent dancer, actor and performance artist. After a dance career in Brussels, London, Geneva, Paris, Zurich and Basle, she came to live in Israel and founded the Gabrielle Neuhaus Physical Theatre.

The Woman Who Didn't Want to Come Down to Earth deals with the life of a woman who refuses to touch ground. Confronted with external threats and demands, she obeys neither rules nor gravity and reaches absurd and extreme situations. Each episode portraits with humour and surreal imagery the woman´s personality, as she follows with dogged termination her own path.
