9+10 May 2014 : GUT GIFT : Fabbrica Europa Florence IT

We are deep in the process of creating CLIMAX - a new creation made specifically for The Petach Tikva Museum of Art with seven wonderful dancers: Dalia Chaimsky, Shuli Enosh, Dor Frank, Yuli Kovbasnian, Uri Shafir, Edu Turull Montells and Ofir Yudilevitch - in which Yasmeen goes back to her physical archive and questions moments of climax:  physically, emotionally, spatially and conceptually. This research will develop for a 3 hour work presented during museum hours on the following dates: May 22, June 19, 26&27, July 4&5.  We will update on more information as we get closer.

Also in May GUT GIFT, the solo for Francesca Foscarini will be presented in Italy and in France: on May 9+10 at the Fabbrica Europa 2014 in Firenze, Italy, and later that month at  Rencontres chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis on May 26-28. GUT GIFT, premiered in February in Rome's Festival Equilibrio. A year ago Francesca won the Equilibrio Award for Best Performer, which gave her the possibility to invite a choreographer of her choice to create a solo piece for her. Here's the trailer by Matteo Maffesanti.

On June 9+10 we will present a very special two shows of  LOVE FIRE as part of the 25 years celebrations for The Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance in Tel-Aviv. Yair Vardi, the director of the center chose the show as one of his favorites' shows that was presented there. This is what they wrote in the program of their festival:

"Award-winning Israeli-American choreographer Yasmeen Godder has received worldwide acclaim for her intensely physical, no- holds-barred approach to movement. Set entirely to recordings of well- known waltzes, Yasmeen's 2009's work Love Fire is a visceral response to the desire to fall in love, to lose control, to be transformed and to be taken by passion. Love Fire gives an exhilarating new twist to stereotypes of male and female identity, and the roles they play within a relationship. Johann Strauss' Blue Danube Waltz will never be the same again!"
