The Kurt Jooss Prize was established as a prize for young choreographers in 2001 on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Kurt Jooss, co-founder of the Folkwang Academy and founder of the Folkwang Dance Studio. On 24.May 2007 the prize was awarded to choreographers Nicola Mascia (Italy) und Matan Zamir (Israel) collectively known as Matanicola, for their work under 1 .

In under 1 Nicola Mascia und Matan Zamir explore the idea of creating a common identity by confronting contradictions and similarities of their cultural and religious backgrounds and playing with our perceptions of intimacy and gender expectations.
