The question of how ideas – whether political, social or ideological – are realised physically is one of Alexander Gottfarb’s main artistic interests.
In his new work, he and his dancers concentrate on the physicality and the individual and collective movement material that is practiced in different religious contexts: what is the relationship between belief and its physical expression? What rituals, symbols and physical sequences are linked to religious sequences and gestures?
