the natural evolution of my dancer body and soul towards a mother dancer choreographer new body .
the milk factory research started during a residency in Finland with a ten month old baby , and continuedthanks tothe machol shalem residency support in Israel.
i was working aloneat the studio and found myself exploring my new mummy body.pregnant again a milk factory once more.
- I found that the way I felt about my body had changed. The idea that my body was now the source of nourishment was interesting to me conceptually as well as physically - as a person who’s body is their main resource and tool I thought this was almost metaphorical. the work is a play on gestures and motions from the everyday life of motherhood.
i was very happy and playful working in the studio discovering the new relation i have with my breast.
this new experience had made me discover unknown layers of femininity on my bodysoul and work.
I would like to thank machol shalem ....
For their support which enabled me to develop this project.
and the beautiful dancers that went deep in the processwith a lot of love
After Austria, Germany, Japan, Italy and France, we are deligthed to add Israel to the international line-up of our 24th edition!
The Jerusalem based choreographer SOFIA KRANTZ comes with a powerfully packed piece for and with five women. A popart- anti-drama for the modern day feminist of femininity. This piece is not for the individualist, it is a ballad of a collective identity ready to strategize, fight, laugh, sigh and sing for the post-post dramatic - still Untitled – hysteria of the versatile stage.
The work of Sofia as an independent choreographer focuses on the different psychological and mental aspects of her craft as well as on the relationships between spectator and spectacle. She conducts an ongoing dialogue with the cultural atmosphere and subjects that are current in the medium of dance. Her work is influenced by Pop Art, fashion, electro music, fine art and ballet. www.sofiakrantz.com
The European premiere of Untitled is, without a doubt, a special treat for the Berlin audience!
