If One Keeps Walking is the latest work by Hagit Yakira dance. It’s a site-responsive, experiential performance event that sees a cast of five exceptional professional dancers performing alongside a participatory cast of up to 50 people of all ages and abilities, drawn from the local community.

Audiences are taken on a journey that begins outside; walking and watching, in and through the urban environment, using subtle invitations from performers as a guide. The journey is simultaneously quiet, animated, solitary and together. It culminates in a (theatre) setting, where an original composition by Sabio Janiak is complemented by a live voice artist and the full cast perform together in a space without delineation. Boundaries between audience, performers and dancers are blurred to create a uniquely human experience.

If One Keeps Walking premiered in Stavanger in September 19 and 21 at the Stavanger Arts Museum. As well as at the Coda International Dance Festival in Oslo. At the Oslo Opera House, Norway on October 19 and 20.
