SIMPLE ACTION

SIMPLE ACTION - A Participatory Choreographic Action Inspired by Stabat Mater

In SIMPLE ACTION, Yasmeen Godder and her Company continue researching how to use the performance medium as a means of connecting the audience to itself and to the performers, both as individuals and as a group, while at the same time engaging in themes such as empathy, understanding, identification and the sensorial experience in real time, as part of the work's structure. Spectatorship enters the realm of the experience. The piece, inspired by Stabat Mater, the famous Christian hymn, is newly composed and performed live by the musician and singer Tomer Damsky who is created her own original and hypnotic version of it which adds to the immersive and ritualistic quality of the work.

 

*SIMPLE ACTION can be presented both as a site-specific work and also has a version for theatres with a construction of a large tent and light design.
