MEMO | Anat Grigorio | Israeli Week
Movement and live music translated into a live event based upon audience interaction
Memo is dealing with what is the evolution of our memories? Can we really choose what influences will stay with us? Can we really ignore the imprints of life and history? Can we remove them? Do we have free choice?
Exploring the explosive material of our personal history and how it evolves into our personality.
It is an invitation to have an effect and design the performance through the performer by engraving/stamping/imprinting her body with words and thoughts that have a direct influence on the way the performer will move and appear. What will stay and how will it affect her? What will be erased and what will have a new meaning?
Anat Grigorio Dance Projects combine contemporary dance and physical theater creating multidisciplinary art works and collaborations with artists on both national and international arenas. Anat’s work is based on constant exploration of the human body through natural sensuality that is hidden in simple mundane activities and takes roots in constant research of human spirit behavior and consciousness, their limits, roles and influences on each other.
