Yasmeen Godder’s Storm End Come

April 29, 2012

As you may know, I am enrolled in a unique-to-Dance Jerusalem lecture course called Dance in Israel. As you may or may not know, I adore it. Though all lessons are filled with great information, video, photo, and opportunity for discussion, the most effective (and my favorite) progression of these dance history (or current events?) lessons ends with a trip to see a live performance. Just last night Dance Jerusalem hit the Suzanne Dellal Center once more for another amazing demonstration of Israeli dance. This time, we visited Tel Aviv to see Yasmeen Godder’s Storm End Come.

Idan Cohen’s “Mad Siren”

February 20, 2012

Dear Idan Cohen,

I tonight had the pleasure of viewing Mad Siren at the Suzanne Dellal Center in Tel Aviv. Your work in this piece exemplifies the deep research I hope to invest in my own choreography. Among my favorite things about Mad Siren are your crafting and grouping of odd numbers of dancers and your thorough use of spoken word and prop elements. I especially applaud your dancers’ understanding of the work. I left the theater this evening inspired to enter the studio and invest time in my own research. I look forward to perhaps seeing Mad Siren again in a few months, and seeing more of your work in the future. כל הכבוד!

Sincerely, Carlo
