Eviatar/Said & Rising

Shira Eviatar

Shira Eviatar is an independent choreographer from Tel Aviv whose object of study is the meaning of dance as part of ethnic identity. She creates a personal sketch of Yemenite cultural tradition that is passed on like an inheritance. Her performer Evyatar Said zooms in on Jewish-Yemenite and Palestinian dance traditions. In the solo Eviatar/Said he uses his personal (physical) memories, knowledge and sensations, deconstructing and rewriting them for the present.

Rising is an encounter between two dancers with two sets of movement language that are rooted in two different cultures: Yemenite and Moroccan. In this duet, Anat Amrani and Shira Eviatar study the movements that have been etched into their systems because they go back to the festive old Arab-Jewish traditions. Eviatar removes them from this context and strips them of their ethnic aesthetic to reveal the differences and similarities.
