Gil Kerer

About the Workshop |

A choreography workshop in which students learn materials and use improvisation on and around the materials.  In the workshop we will examine the possibilities of connecting to the movement from the logical side and the physical understanding of the movement. On the other hand, we will try to deepen the mental, emotional and "non-physical" contents of the choreography and connect them to us as individuals who meet the content. Thus we will try to find a direct connection between experience and body.
