Within four white walls

When Yasmeen Godder revealed that she was making a piece that was going to take place at the Petah Tikva Museum of Art, she joined a stream of international choreographers that marry performance and visual arts. A tradition that most notably took root in North America in the 1970s, the juxtaposition of dance in museum spaces offers audiences a freer and often more intimate perspective on the creation at hand.

One year after its premiere, Godder continues to challenge herself by bringing Climax, a markedly site-specific work, into a more traditional theater space.

This month, Godder will present Climax in Batsheva Dance Company’s Studio Varda as part of the Batsheva Invites series.
