About the Workshop |

There are many movements in our body that seek to be expressed in the world, but because of our belonging to society we are unable to express them. In this workshop we will try to connect to those lost movements and turn them into movement stories. The method of work is a slow movement that allows us to connect with ourselves through our body sensations, and use them as a connection to the stories that are hidden in our bodies. From improvisation, we find repetitive elements in which to find a coherent story for ourselves. Later on, we will experience with an ensemble work through improvisation. The workshop is an introductory workshop and presents some of the tools with which I work. It is suitable for people who wish to explore themselves through their bodies, dancers and dance students who are required to improvise in creative processes, to artists who seek to become rich in approaches to the mysterious thing called "creation" and to those who engage in improvisation in motion.

About the Artist |

Ido began to dance at a late age, and he was forced to find original ways and altruistic frameworks in order to advance in the field. He received the wisdom of movement and inspiration from teachers and dancers such as Yasmin Godder, Fry Faust, Aryeh Burstein, Sigal Jablonski, Sandra Amsalem, Ella Ben Aharon, Isotok Kovac, Alex Shmurk, Keren Horesh, Maya Stern and Tomer Sharabi. For several years he choreographed together with Ella Ben-Aharon and their works appeared in New York and in Israel. His last independent work "Adequate Distance" won the third prize and the Audience Award at the Zaviriona Competition in Warsaw. In recent years he has focused on studying contact and improvisation in weekly lessons for dancers and "people", and spends every week in the studio in creative processes. What fascinates and leads him in his work and study is the connection between the human and the aesthetic, and how they can be combined into the art of performance. He studied and worked with people through the Grinberg method, studied and taught martial arts in Jujitsu, and now holds a BA in Psychology. Ido also works as a computer programmer.

A movie/book that inspires you |

Countless movies and books touch my heart. The last movie that stirred my heart was "The Imitation Game" based on the life of Alan Turing, who is considered one of the fathers of the computer and who saved two years and millions of deaths from World War II.
