We are busy working towards the world premiere of the full evening version of Lie Like A Lion in Bassano del Grappa (IT) on August 21st as part of B-Motion. Excited to be collaborating with two talented musicians/performers: Matan Daskal and Moshe Aharonov. In the same festival GUT GIFT, the solo for Francesca Foscariniwill also be presented - on August 22nd and then continue to its Belgium premiere at Les Brigittines, Brussels, as part of Brigittines International Festival using this text to describe the work: "Using the basic characteristics of femininity, from the hyper-sensitive to the primary and visceral, as well as the physical resources and talent of Francesca Foscarini, Yasmeen Godder wrote a score that is true to her style, free, wild and syncopated. Her performer's ability to condense and suggest makes it possible to reveal all at once the image and its criticism. An electric duo. "
Thanks to the great reviews and high demand of audiences the The Petach-Tikva Museum of Art has added 2 last performances of the dance/installationCLIMAX on August 6 and August 9. The new creation is being presented in the frame-work of a new exhibition: Set in Motion; Dance-Art-Community curated by Drorit Gur Arie and Avi Feldman. InCLIMAX Godder collaborated with seven wonderful dancers: Dalia Chaimsky, Shuli Enosh, Dor Frank, Yuli Kovbasnian, Uri Shafir, Edu Turull Montells and Ofir Yudilevitch. CLIMAX is Yasmeen's first experience with site-specific work intended for a museum interior, attempting to define a new space for the intricate dialogue between viewer-object-body-space-time-movement. The work was developed via reflexive hindsight-a gaze which is not retrospective by essence, nor strives to reconstruct earlier works. Instead, it is an intense process of decontextualization, while plunging into the archive and revisiting works created by Yasmeen in the past fifteen years, extracting physical, emotional, communal, spatial, and conceptual peaks.
The show is constructed of two 70 minute sections with a 20 minute intermission.
The performance on Saturday August 9th is SOLD OUT. Last tickets for Wednesday August 6th 18:00-21:00. Tickets are 30₪, including a visit to the exhibition. It is advised to reserve you place ahead of arrival: 03-9286304
