The stage is a multilingual space
in which I would like to bridge
the hesitant (but fussy free) stutter,
that I have in English,
the knowing (but rigid) confidence,
that I have in Hebrew,
and the ineloquent (but intuitive) vitality,
that I have in movement.
I find the advantage of
not speaking the language,
of being a non-dancer.
Unrestrained to the schooling of the language.
I seek the freedom
of giving in to the mistakes and imprecision,
In a language that is not mine,
And prefer the try over the stillness.
The piece was presented at "Between Heaven And Earth" dance festival, Jerusalem, August 2021.
