c.a.t.a.m.o.n Dance Group presents Somewhere
Enjoy an evening of dance presented by c.a.t.a.m.o.n Dance Group. Based in Jerusalem, c.a.t.a.m.o.n is a collaborative dance group and cultural organization. They will be performing their piece Somewhere.
Somewhere, between the desire for a life of connection with our surroundings versus the desire to set the limits of our body, there lies an action. It is documented in movement and material. Similar to Italo Calvino’s masterful book The Invisible Cities, this is how we depict distant islands becoming concrete material. Material recorded in space through sound, text, human movement, and color on the ground. Here the human body is shown devoid of tangible concepts. As if it is requiring us to rebuild fallen walls around our own island. Choreographed by Elad Schechter. Performed by Korina Fraiman and Ido Gidron. View the trailer.
c.a.t.a.m.o.n Dance Group is a cultural organization established by choreographer Elad Schechter in Jerusalem in 2012. All the group’s activities are grounded in creating diverse intercultural collaborations that create intense body-to-place experiences. By embodying the uniqueness of Jerusalem—its multicultural mosaic and the avant-garde spirit of young Jerusalem artists—c.a.t.a.m.o.n is excited to be taking both the physical and the celestial Jerusalem on tour.
