Super excited about the upcoming shows of CLIMAX as part of New European Theatre (N.E.T Festival) in Moscow on December 5 & 6. The work, that has been originally conceived as a site-specific performance for Museum's space will be reassembled anew by Godder to fit into the Theatre of Nation’s New Space on Strastnoy boulevard 12/2. This is what is written on the work in the Festival's program: "Her work expresses itself in a unique physical and visual language and a committed honest and brave execution which invokes a rare physical- emotional- experiential effect."
We are returning with one show only of Common Emotions as part of the International Exposure Festival 2016 on December 9th at Warehouse 2, Jaffa Port. This will be our last show there, as Warehouse 2 will be closed at the end of December. We have 50 places for sale , so so hurry up and reserve your ticket.

What makes us participate? How do we enter an unknown emotional world? How does the performance, as a social ceremony, impact the way we relate to each other? What determines our involvement in it and what control do we have over our emotional self during this act? In her new work Common Emotions, Godder was interested in tapping into theses question in relation to how we connect to each other in groups, and how do these common emotions which evolve out of it, infiltrate our individuality. By challenging the formal separation between spectators and performers, Godder allows the audience to experience their emotional and performative selves during the show. This proposal suggests an intimacy with the performers and impacts the way by which the work unfolds in real time. All of this raises questions in regards to communal-emotional connectivity and infectiousness, and echoes social and national behaviour which we may encounter in our daily lives. One decides whether to watch an aesthetic phenomenon or to experience it with one's own body.
“In this mix, which occurs with constant flow, between the the legendary and the now, between dreamlike music and silence, with a shifting reservoir of of participants on stage, present but partially hidden- all this creates a sense of depth and inquisitiveness.” ( Ruth Eshel, Haaretz)
"This work by Godder, is is conducted in the most released spirit, almost effortless, as the characteristic movement of Godder enjoys the excellent performance of Shuli Enosh, Ari Teperberg, Ofir Yudilevitch, Dor Frank, Ayala Frenkel and Uri Shafir” Ora Brafman, dancetalk.co.il
“An authentic performance , organic, sacred…”(cccdanse.com)
"Common Emotions is utopian, insofar as it depends on community ... such a cheerful and at the same time serious evening.” (A. Hoffmann, Badiche Gazette)
“...In Common Emotions are horror and comedy , absurdity and threat , tenderness and monstrosity are all combined together and prove that the Israeli choreographer - in such an unusual performance format - is a master of the grotesque.” (E. Nehring ,deutschlandradio kultur )

Following the premiere shows of Common Emotions in Tanz und Theatre Festival at Theatre Freiburg, we participated in The Dancer’s Knowledge- What else is it good for? -a two day workshop at Theater Freiburg, that was a closure to our year long project and collaboration with Theater Freiburg, that we feel so l honored and thankful for. “Störung/ הפרעה” was a unique collaborative interdisciplinary project that brought together scientists, professional dancers and choreographers, physicians, as well as people with Parkinson’s from Israel and Germany, to explore different aspects of human movement and movement disorder. To read more about it here’s the blog: www.hafraah.wordpress.com
In 2016 we continue with the dance classes for people who live with Parkinson, every Monday at 11:30 (look for the column at the side for more information).
In November 2015 we received news that Yasmeen won the Ministry’s of Culture “Creation Prize” for CLIMAX. Here are the judges words: "Godder has a significant role in the the Israeli dance scene and receives both local and international recognition. Her work is characterised by detailed and deep artistic research which expresses itself in a unique physical and visual language and a committed honest and brave execution which invokes a rare physical- emotional- experiential effect. "
