Movement Research Workshop by Sita Ostheimer (former dancer with
Hofesh Shechter Company)
During the workshop, the participants will be guided through the improvisation technique that Sita uses to give the dancers an understanding of their connection between mind and body, in order to be in control of their own physical instrument and thus continue to grow creatively. It is a game that combines images, situations, feelings, rhythm and the way of embodying them. Her kinesiology is built on fast rhythmical changes of emotions and images. The language of her movements is expressive, fluent, sensual and earthy. It was Ostheimer’s collaboration with choreographers such as Hofesh Shechter and Itzik Galili that resulted to this approach to her movement, her work and her life. This unique animalistic movement language that originates from the human instincts is her trade mark as a dancer.
