Yasmeen Godder‒ an Israeli choreographer now in the spotlight of the international dance scene. The desire to fall in love, to lose control, to be transformed and taken by passion are explored through bold physicality and bizzare imagery, which give a new twist to stereotypes of male and female identity, and the roles they play within a relationships.


"an invitation to visit the colorful cabaret of the choreographer who butchers her heart and guts out in front of the audience, but this time she does it with lots of humor. Luckily, the same explosive element which characterizes her previous works, received here a place full of air and smart sense of humor"
Shelly Kling, Globes
