The pieces of Yasmeen Godder, one of the most important Israeli choreographers, fascinate with their direct and intense corporeality. They explore theatre as a space for experimenting with emotions and as a place of togetherness. As part of the Hollins University’s summer program, Godder presents her newest piece. “SIMPLE ACTION” lives up to the promise of its title: A simple plot opening up infinite possibilities of empathy and engagement. The interactive performance centres on an iconic image of human history, which condenses into catching an enervated body, lying down and confiding. Taking, giving, holding, letting go, the audience acquires intimacy with itself in a single sequence of movements, as individuals and as a group, whilst simultaneously asking for empathy, understanding, identification and the momentary experience.
