Sharon and Omer Backley-Astrachan are independent artists from Sydney Australia. With most of their dance career spent in Israel, Omer and Sharon worked with various companies such as Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company and The Israeli Ballet as well as a long list of independent artists such as Marina Abramovic, Idan Cohen and Uri Ivgi & Johan Greben. The couple have been based in Sydney since 2014. Their works have been presented in many festivals both home and overseas such as the Sydney Fringe Festival and the Israeli Summer Dance Festival. The couple is thrilled to be invited to present their work TOHU in The Blue Room Theater's Summer Nights Season in 2018. TOHU was created throughout and thanks to residencies with Bundanon Trust, Catapult Dance, BrandX Studios and Readymade Works.
