About the author
Danielle Shoufra is a choreographer and an artist.
Danielle’s works deal with the research of the environment in which she operates and revolve around memory aside or versus history. Danielle raises questions about what is knowledge, how is it preserved, and what is the physical ability to resist, store and represent new knowledge. Danielle’s works are performed on outdoor stages, in which she examines the choreographic potential of the vulnerable, fluid and resilient body. Danielle examines the ability to influence the ephemeral action, in real spaces, an action which she strives to reproduce in imaginary, utopian and heterotopias spaces.
Since 2018 Danielle has been developing the format ‘Suggestion for Urban Research’ in which she met with female residents of Bat Yam City and collected their memoirs of the city. Parts of the project have been displayed at the 2019 ‘Adam’s Rock’ exhibition in MoBY (Museums of Bat Yam). In 2020 Danielle will premier “The Sea Effect” in which she will continue the ongoing activity in the city, supported by Kelim Center for Dance.
