Practicing Empathy #1

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 #1“ (the first practice that was created) focuses on the relationship and connectivity of the performers as they delve into a score of repetitive physical and vocal rituals, exposing their inner emotional landscapes. They play with creating an environment where empathy can be explored as a way to support, encourage, and react to the depth and complexity of their own and other‘s needs and expressions.

Co-production: Tanzhaus nrw, Düsseldorf
