Storm End Come

In STORM END COME the performers embark on a journey of fluid and unpredictable mental states, which lead them to meetings and interactions in shifting environments. Within this unstable atmosphere, the work unravels a world which looks at one's assumption of "self" as it is challenged by the basic fear of non-existence and of disappearing into someone else, alongside the attraction and alarm of transformation. Within this conundrum, there is still the need to reach small climaxes, expose moments of personal expression, and be a witness of someone else's intimacy. Embodying all of this, the work looks at the struggle to rebirth ones' identity through a series of personal, collective and animalistic sequences; A kind of heroic, pathetic and vulnerable insistence to define oneself, hindered by the need to submit to elements which are beyond our powers.

Godder's approach to dance has changed the way many see the art of choreography (ORI J. LENKINSKI pre-view at the Jerusalem Post)

"A work of compelling intensity... The dancers commit entirely.
Storm End Come is an exhaustive exploration of experience, from existential angst, fear and alienation to orgiastic embraces and the harsh pleasure of children on a playground - sweaty, rough, triumphant, breathless, a human calligraphy of the emotions on white canvas". ...
." Ayelet Dekel

"Godder herself has a unique presence with powerful, intense and inimitably assured, playfully wicked stage persona.This time she stepped back and left the stage to a cast of six dancers. Yet unmistakably, her unique signature, her idiosyncratic lexicon was tightly anchored in the work by all her dancers." Ora Brafman, Jerusalem Post
