The bi-annual program for choreography 2021-2023 directed by May Zarhy

The bi-annual program for choreography in Kelim Center is a research-based-space – both artistic and pedagogic – meant for people, whose interest lies in the body and in choreography as a medium for research. It is a two-year-long postgraduate study program, taking place two days a week, mostly on Sundays and Monday

The program wishes to create a supportive environment for asking fragile questions out loud, to get confused and not to know, to lose one’s orientation and to re-find it differently, in order to develop and specify the direction of each participant. The aims of the program include guiding the participants into developing theoretical tools integrated within the physical studio practice (whatever form this might have), to articulate one’s credo, and to ask what choreography can be and can do, while moving,, while doing.

It includes individual work along with group discourse and initiatives as part of the research artistic process. During the studies, the participants will experience group workshops, theory classes, meetings with various practitioners from the field, lectures about diverse actual subjects, work presentations and feedback sessions, personal and group mentoring, and mor

The privileged place of the program within Kelim Center with its different activities, such as: its residency program, ‘March Hare’ festival, its community activities, and more, enables a multi-dimensional learning and unlearning experience. It allows intimate encounters with diverse working methods and practices from artists active in the local and international field. The program takes place in the two beautiful studios of Kelim. It offers studio space for the participants’ own work. 

Who does the program invite?

The program invites people with prior experience in creation processes, professional work and critical thinking. People who see the field of choreography as a central  part of their life in the present and future. People who have motivation and desire to make up, initiate and form various sorts of artistic and critical platforms.
The program includes physical body work classes in different contemporary practices, therefore, it requires an in-depth acquaintance and curiocity with working with one’s body.

** However, the program keeps an open mind and heart for surprises that don’t necessarily fall within the criteria.

Director of the program: May Zarhy

Among the teachers: Hillel Kogan, Lior Avizoor, Arkadi Zaides, Ana Wild, Sharon Zuckerman Weiser, Anat Vaadia, Almog loven, Nir Shauloff, Noa Shoval, Shir Hacham, Michael Getman.

FROM MODEL TO CREATION /
LIOR AVIZOOR
The workshop is based upon two assumptions. In order to become conscious choreographers who understand their work and not just “feel” it, one must decode the concrete work methods of the choreographer.
