Between Heaven, Earth and Family — בין שמיים, ארץ ומשפחה

post image

The first time I saw Eyal dancing in a performance was at the end of first year at Kol Atzmotai Tomarna School, and the truth is that it was a pretty tough experience… It was in a small and closed studio in which twelve men had been dancing all day… We sat in a circle around them and, for me, it was way too close and intimate.

Between Heaven, Earth and Family

On November 2, the 8th annual Between Heaven and Earth Festival will kick off in Jerusalem. This year’s theme is Intergenerational Transfer. In a very special collaboration between the festival’s director, Ronen Itzhaki, and Creative Writing, we reached out to family members of presenting choreographers. We gave them a short questionnaire and asked that they share their thoughts and feelings about accompanying the choreographer throughout their journey.

Dear Intimadance,   I started my process with a little research about Yoko Ono. More specifically, about John and Yoko and how they were perceived. (None of that research was at all relevant to the piece I presented and was most likely a massive waste of time.) In any case, the story goes that JohnRead more

Spring Forward: Kids by Kuan-Hsiang Liu

post image

Kids is a staged documentation of sorts of the death of Liu’s mother. Throughout the piece, recorded conversations between Liu and his late mother are played. These talks touch on her impending death, on memory and on family history. Like life, they don’t always follow a clear path.
