Performers: Shira Eviatar and Anat Amrani
Rising is an encounter of two bodies of knowledge from two different cultures: Yemenite and Moroccan. We examine the movements etched in our body, sourced in our tradition. The dance of celebration is displaced out of its context and set on stage, striped from its ethnic aesthetics, allowing us to compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the two traditions. We examine the juncture of the ethnic body and physical body. Through the action of "re-wearing" these movements we hope to raise feelings, sensations and mindsets belonging to these cultures.
