SIMPLE ACTION

SIMPLE ACTION - A Participatory Choreographic Action Inspired by Stabat Mater

In SIMPLE ACTION, Yasmeen Godder continues researching with her company how to use the performance medium as a means of connecting the audience to itself and to the performers, both as individuals and as a group, while at the same time engaging in themes such as empathy, understanding, identification and sensorial experience in real time, as part of the work's structure. Spectatorship enters the realm of the experience. The piece, inspired by Stabat Mater,the famous Christian hymn, is newly  and composed and performed live by the musician and singer Tomer Damsky who is creating her own original and hypnotic version of it. Another wonderful collaborator is the visual artist Gili Avissar who is designing the space and the costumes. And the lighting designer Omer Sheizaf with whom Godder has been collaborating for many years will be creating a special light installation for the studio.
