In August 2017 the Yasmeen Godder Company will premiere Two Playful Pink- a groundbreaking female duet from 20013 which has won Godder extensive international acclaim and launched her career. The duet originally created and performed by Yasmeen Godder and her well known collaborator Iris Erez, is restaged with two powerful performers: Dor Frank and Francesca Foscarini. Francesca Foscarini is an acclaimed Italian dancer and choreographer, whom Godder met when she commissioned her to create the solo Gut Gift, as part of the Best Performer prize at the Equilibrio Festival. Alongside her is Dor Frank, who joined the Company in 2014, as part of the cast of CLIMAX for the Petach Tikva Museum of Arts, and since has taken part in all of the following projects: Storung/Hafraah, Common Emotions and Simple Action.
In Two Playful Pink two women respond to the constant gaze that inspects them. Being looked at, examined, and living up to the expectation, where the body operates as a social tool, they develop a relationship between them. Inspired by surreal imagery and pop energy, the three different sections present different aspects of the female body and psyche, exposing a refreshing language: mysterious, funny and disturbing all at once.
The premiere shows of Two Playful Pink will be presented as part of Tel-Aviv Dance Festival on August 15 - 16 Suzanne Dellal Center Tel-Aviv (IL) and afterwards on August 26 at B-Motion Festival Bassano del Grappa (IT), August 29 - 30 at Festival International des Brigittines Les Brigittines , Brussels (BE)
Yasmeen will be spending all of July in London working with the wonderful Candoco Dance Company on a new creation- "Face In". The world Premiere will be at the Festival Oriente Occidente in Rovereto on September 9th, and afterwards more shows in Torino and Manchester, and back to London in March 2018.

We're excited about the launch of the global Dance for Parkinson's portal in honor of World Parkinson's Day and International Dance Day on April 29. The Yasmeen Godder Company was chosen to be the Israeli partner in this wonderful project and you are welcome to click-in and read about the weekly Contemporary Dance Classes for People who Lives with Parkinson that take place in our studio. Inside you will find rare documentation from two classes – one with Anat Vaadia and the second with Sigal Bergaman. The portal is an amazing tool to read and learn about varied approaches from some of the finest dance centers in the world that develop dance classes for people who lives with Parkinson.
Our weekly Contemporary Dance Classes for people living with Parkinson’s Disease began in February 2015, as part of the “Störung/הפרעה” Project. Initiated by Theatre Freiburg, Germany, this unique interdisciplinary collaborative project brought together professional dancers and choreographers with scientists and physicians – along with people with Parkinson’s from Israel and Germany – to explore different aspects of human movement and movement disorder. For more information about the project please visit our blog: www.hafraah.wordpress.com Following this successful and fulfilling year, we have continued the weekly classes independently. In January 2017, we received a generous grant from The Ted Arison Family Foundation allowing us to add another weekly class and offer the classes to the community at no cost. more information about the classess
