Ronit teach composition with a special emphasis on the relation between the dramatic elements of dance and performance composition. She has created a series of workshops:
1." can I ask you something personal"
During the workshop we touch the personal and the documentary by using video and trying to catch a special moment one a bout the other. The workshop is leading at the end to a public presentation.
During the workshop we examine the connection between a pause and a movement and what lay between a picture and a movement.
3/ "from text to choreography"
The workshop examined different ways to interpret dramatic text into movement. We work with a contemporary text such as "Hamlet Machine" by Heiner Muller.
