Wake Up and Awaken
'A dance and visual art piece in collaboration with 'Studio of her own
My perception of the female DNA that I absorbed over the years from society and the environment is shaken. Through researching the gap between the past and the future, I wonder if my present, as a woman in the 21st century is better, and I am interested, as an artist who brings together the dancing body with the visual dimension, in testing my interface as a woman along the axis of history.
The creation was born from a dialogue and debate about the exhibitions of inaugural bowls and Galilean stamps on display in the Bible Lands Museum, which deal with identity and defense. The exposure to these objects opened a path to in depth research, thought and pondering about identity and the place of women in our times, in light of the dramatic changes that occurred along the axis of history in the world of women.
