Aviva is a uniquely sexy dancing-in-the-streets-sheets-and-bars impressionistic take on a movie romance, set in a New York world of gender-fluid and frequently fully unclothed bodies. The dreamy new film by director Boaz Yakin (Fresh, Remember the Titans, A Price Above Rubies), with choreography from co-star and former member of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company, Bobbi Jene Smith, tells a story that is timeless, universal and yet up-to-the-moment.
The character of Aviva, played by Zina Zinchenko (and at times by Or Schraiber), is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with Eden, played by Tyler Phillips (and at times Bobbie Jene Smith), a New Yorker. After a long courtship they meet in person and fall in love, settling into an intimate relationship that leads to marriage, but one, as many are, laced with conflicts. Incorporating exuberant dance sequences, and featuring a pair of principal characters played by four different actors daringly expressing both masculine and feminine sides, Aviva captures a restless and changing today where who we are as women and men, and how we navigate the world, is up for grabs.
The film’s distributor will be splitting the revenue with Tampa Theatre 50/50. Please note that this arrangement, in these unprecedented times, means that we are unable to offer Member pricing for virtual screenings. Thanks for your understanding, and THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING TO SUPPORT TAMPA THEATRE!
