“In this mix, which occurs with constant flow, between the the legendary and the now, between dreamlike music and silence, with a shifting reservoir of of participants on stage, present but partially hidden-  all this creates a sense of depth and inquisitiveness.” ( Ruth Eshel, Haaretz)

"This work by Godder, is is conducted in the most released spirit, almost effortless, as the characteristic movement of Godder enjoys the excellent performance of Shuli Enosh, Ari Teperberg, Ofir Yudilevitch, Dor Frank, Ayala Frenkel and Uri Shafir” Ora Brafman,

“An authentic performance , organic, sacred…”(

"Common Emotions is utopian, insofar as it depends on community ... such a cheerful and at the same time serious evening.” (A. Hoffmann, Badiche Gazette)

“...In Common Emotions are horror and comedy , absurdity and threat , tenderness and monstrosity are all combined together and prove that the Israeli choreographer -  in such an unusual performance format  - is a master of the grotesque.” (E. Nehring ,deutschlandradio kultur )

Gut Gift, orignally created in 2014 and performed by Francesca Foscarini will have its Israeli premiere on  November 7th at the Between the Earth and Sky Festival in Jersualem.  Francesca Foscarini is an acclaimed Italian dancer and choreographer, whom Godder met when Francesca commissioned her in 2014 to create Gut Gift, as part of the Best Performer prize at the Equilibrio Festival. Since then the work has performed all over Europe and is now finally coming to Israel.  


Just completed our 6 ecstatic premiere shows of the repriese of Two Playful Pink- a powerful and thought-provoking duet from 2003, originally created and performed by Yasmeen Godder and her well known collaborator Iris Erez, and now restaged with two powerful performers: Dor Frank and Francesca Foscarini. Presented at the B-Motion Festival at Bassano del Grappa Italy and at the International Festival at Les Brigittines in Brussles, the work will return to performances in the first week of December , as part of the International Exposure Festival at the Suzanne Dellal Center for Dance in TLV. 


On September 9th  Candoco Dance Company will premeire a new creation by Godder titled Face In. The world Premiere will be at the Festival Oriente Occidente in Rovereto alongside Trisha Brown's classic Set and Reset,  followed by more shows in Torino and Manchester, and in March 2018 back to London's Sadler's Wells.

We're honored to be a part of the Global Dance for Parkinson's portal. The Yasmeen Godder Company was chosen to be the Israeli partner in this wonderful project and you are welcome to click-in and read about our weekly Contemporary Dance Classes for People Living with Parkinson's. Inside you will find documentation from two classes held in our studio: one with Anat Vaadia and the second with Sigal Bergman. The portal is an amazing tool to read and learn about varied approaches from some of the finest dance centers in the world that develop  dance classes for people who lives with Parkinson.  


Our weekly Contemporary Dance Classes for people living with Parkinson’s Disease began in February 2015, as part of the “Störung/הפרעה” Project. Initiated by Theatre Freiburg, Germany, this unique interdisciplinary collaborative project brought together professional dancers and choreographers with scientists and physicians – along with people with Parkinson’s from Israel and Germany – to explore different aspects of human movement and movement disorder. For more information about the project please visit our Following this successful and fulfilling year, we have continued  the weekly classes independently. In January 2017, we received a generous grant from The Ted Arison Family Foundation allowing us to add another weekly class and offer the classes to the community at no cost. more information about the classess
