CPR – Center for Performance Research, 361 Manhattan Avenue
c.a.t.a.m.o.n Dance Group and choreographer Elad Schechter, in collaboration with The Neighborhood: An Urban Center for Jewish Life, present Somewhere, a new duet that uses sound, movement and color to question two opposing human impulses: the desire to connect with our surroundings versus the desire to set the limits of our bodies. Somewhere takes us on a journey, exploring how we make distant islands into concrete realities and how we can rebuild the fallen walls around our own islands.
Join us after the performance for a conversation with c.a.t.a.m.o.n artistic director and choreographer Elad Schechter, The Neighborhood’s Rebecca Guber, and Chef Tali Friedman, the first woman to serve as head of the merchants association of Jerusalem’s Mahne Yehuda market, for a conversation on movement, art, and culture in the city of Jerusalem.
Somewhere is presented at CPR – Center for Performance Research, Brooklyn and is supported by the @CPR Performance Series as part of CPR – Center for Performance Research’s Subsidized Space Rental Program.
Before the performance, join the dancers for a GAGA workshop, a technique developed by Ohad Naharin of Batsheva Dance Company. GAGA offers a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere. More information here.
