This is the 7th time we are invited to perform and participate at the B-Motion Festival in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. This time we will come with three shows of Common Emotions which will be presented at Garage Nardini on August 25-26. And then on August 28th the Company will present a new choreographic installations inspired by the theme of Stabat Mater at the beautiful Chiesa Oratorio Ca' Erizzo -an desecrated church. The installation is an interactive action which has developed with the Shuli Enosh, Ayala Frankel, Dor Frank, Uri Shafir, Ari Teperberg and Ofir Yudilevich and the musician and vocalist Tomer Damsky, who will do a special live version of the famous 13th-century Catholic hymn.
Prior to the the shows, Yasmeen Godder and Ofir Yudilevitch will teach dance classes to people who live with Parkinson and participate in a larger context of dialogue regarding dance for people living with Parkinson’s disease.
CLIMAX will be performing in New York City on October 20-22 at Gibney Dance. And the week before will be in residency at UArts in Philadelphia where they will rehearse and teach the Dance Department students parts of CLIMAX
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. "
