FOUNDER’S MISSION Body in Dance
The starting point for any of my creations is the human experience as expressed in the body. My central interest rests in the body and I feel a strong urge to explore it and find out what experiences it conceals. The body is for me the barometer of the psychology and soul of the human being. Imbued in it are social, historical, political and cultural codes.
Our personal and social story is ingrained in our cells, skin and flesh, and what I do in the process of my creation is to decipher the hidden map of the body and soul that are one. I am curious to learn about matters that we as individuals in a society often do not speak about, and sometimes are not even aware of, and I wish to explore social, political and cultural evolutions that we undergo both as individuals and as a society.
I believe in dance as a means of communication, as a language that crosses boundaries, overcomes differences and is accessible to all.
I seek to discover new ranges for movement expression, and am interested in joint ventures with artists in other fields in order to address challenges that face us as individuals and as a society. I chose to cooperate with exceptional artists in the fields of visual art, design, performance and music. Each of them introduces his own perspective to the creative process. These are outstanding artists distinguished by dominant personalities and passion for artistic creation, and together we hold a dialogue on the issues that challenge and puzzle us.
My work is based on my personal experience, on my observations of the society in which I live, on my interaction with them and their influence on me and others. Art is an act of reflection on life; therefore, creation requires a public for whom to present new and old dilemmas and ideas. A creation has no meaning without the active visualization by the spectator. My creation addresses the public and wishes to have the spectators take part in the feelings and situations that I arouse and offers them the possibility to raise doubts about them. I do not look only for their enjoyment by using visual and aesthetic means, but rather wish to challenge their sensitivity and stimulate their thinking. I wish to see the public coming out of the performance wondering, reflecting and discussing the questions that arise out of the creation, even without having reached any concrete solutions. In the believe the a change can start now.
