Since Spring 2020 Yasmeen has been working on a new creation Practicing Empathy #3 - solo for herself which will premier in July at the Pozitione Festival in Mousonturm, Frankfurt. The solo brings back into Godder’s body questions and themes she has been researching around Empathy for the last two years. Working on it over this past year in a world changed due to Covid19 Practicing Empathy #3 also resonates with the internal questioning about self-care which has developed on a global level. In this work Godder is collaborating with Monica Gillette, Nir Vidan, Gili Avisaar, Gili Godiano and Lior Pinsky.
Since early 2019, the Yasmeen Godder Company is deeply involved in a research project titled “Practicing Empathy”, out of which a series of outcomes are being created. Each of the outcomes explore the notion of empathy through a variety of perspectives and approaches, attempting to look at what opens us up emotionally. What makes us identify and connect with others, as well as with ourselves? And how can we create new practices, rituals, songs, and choreographies, which may open up our ability to take in complexities without fear and distrust?
Practicing Empathy #2by2 a format created in response to the spread of Covid-19, for two performers and two audience members, who will share a 25-minute journey, reclaiming the 2-meter restriction and turning it around as a means for connectivity, empathy, and intimacy.
Co-production: Tanzhaus nrw and in collaboration with CSC - Centro per la Scena Contemporanea
״I’m Here״ is a new work by Yasmeen Godder inviting people to perform a personal, physical ritual in the privacy of their homes, creating a body print, using color on fabric. This proposal comes as a response to the disappearance of the body in the public sphere and the need to reconnect with it, feel its materiality, and at the same time acknowledge its fragility and vulnerability. 50 body prints of people who have signed up for this practice were collected and hung together in a central place in Tel Aviv as part of Exit Strategies events and potsdamer tanztag, Germany
