In October the Shimon Peres Prize awarded to those who made an outstanding contribution to the friendship between Germany and Israel was given on the project Störung (“disorder” in German) by German Monica Gillette and Israeli Yasmeen Godder's Company, which incorporated German and Israeli experts from the fields of medicine, engineering, theater and dance in a two-years-long study of the effect of movement and contemporary dance on people with Parkinson's. The prizes were awarded in cooperation with the German-Israeli Future Forum Foundation.
Gut Gift, orignally created in 2014 and performed by Francesca Foscarini will have its Tel-Aviv premiere on December 8th at the Between the Earth and Sky Festival in Tel Aviv Museum of Art. 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.

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 blog: www.hafraah.wordpress.com 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
