Kunstnerisk bildekollasj med tre ulike bilder som flyter over i hverandre. Ett av bildene viser en person som strekker hånden sin opp mot himmelen, som flyter over i et bilde av en hånd med ring på.

Choreographer Hagit Yakira is looking for people worldwide to participate in her new research performance project. Hagit is looking for people from the age of 16 and up with some movement or dance background. You don't need to be a dancer you only need to love moving. The participants will be performing alongside Hagit Yakira dance company.

In our research we will be exploring the myth of Psyche, a mortal woman on a journey of self-knowledge. Participants will be guided into improvisation tasks, and some taught dance routines. The work is solo based.

We are planning to stream our rehearsals so you can join us from wherever you are in the world. We will explain to you how you can perform with us as well.

On the 17th and 18th of December, we will have an open showing for the public, where you are invited to perform alongside us.

The rehearsals will take place in Bjerstedparken and online the following Sundays:

  • 20th of November, 10:00-11:30
  • 27th of November, 10:00-11:30
  • 04th of December, 10:00-11:30
  • 11th of December, 10:00-11:30
