We just came back for truly amazing performances in Oslo as part of CODA International Dance Festival and Stavanger at the Stavanger Arts Museum. 47 people from Oslo’s community and 57 people from Stavanger community along side Hagit Yakira dance performed If One Keeps Walking. We will share comments and images later in November, however in the meanwhile we want to thank all those who joined us and made this happen. What an experience for everyone involved.
If One Keeps Walking is supported by partner organisations from the UK Trinity Laban and Sadler’s Wells, and Stavanger Arts Museum, University of Stavanger and Coda International Dance festival in Norway. Developed with generous support from Arts Council England, Arts Council Norway, Regional Arena for Samtidsdans Sandnes, Tou Scene Stavanger, Stavanger Kommune and FFUK.

AUDIENCE MEMBERS TALK ABOUT HAGIT YAKIRA DANCE
