RISING

RISING

Choreography: Shira Eviatar
Performance: Shira Eviatar, Anat Amrani

In the content of SEAD’s intercultural exchange project Hidden States, the audience in Salzburg is invited to a public showing of Shira’s last work Rising (2016): The work is an encounter of two bodies of knowledge from two different cultures: Yemenite and Moroccan. The dance of celebration is displaced out of its context and set on stage, striped from its ethnic aesthetics, allowing us to compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the two traditions. Through the action of "re-wearing" these movements they hope to raise feelings, sensations and mindsets belonging to these cultures. Both artists examine the junction of the ethnic body and physical body. The work hopes to provide an unbiased space for this Arabic identified movements, allowing us to observe the movements as they are.
