Poetic and subtle, Hagit's choreographic style promises an emotional, honest and human experience in which participants will share connected moments of travelling, pace, intimacy, well-being and sense of belonging.
The rehearsals will be based on physical work where we will be exploring endless possibilities of travelling. Participants will be guided into improvisation tasks, minimal contact work, and some taught dance routines. You will be required to come with comfortable clothes and trainers as some of the rehearsals will be outside.
