Kelim | Body for choreographic work
In 2009 Anat Danieli began, along with Tal Gravinsky, and a group of students/young choreographers, to establish a choreography center and school – Kelim. It is a unique program which focuses on studies, exploration and apprenticeship in choreography:
Kelim offers classes, workshops and performances that focus on research and dialogue between the work, the creator of the work, the audience and the community
In 2009-11 Danieli had created and directed the "New Dance" Platform at Hazira - Interdisciplinary Arena in Jerusalem, together with choreographer Arkadi Zaides. The program is uniquely providing an atmosphere for growth of young artists in the field of dance, and an opportunity to be part of a group of artists who are in dialogue with the local reality through contemporary dance and creation.
