About the author
Roni Chadash, born in 1990, is a dancer, independent choreographer and contemporary dance teacher based in Tel Aviv, who works in Israel and abroad.
In her physical research, Roni tries to find independent mobility abilities in the various body parts and looks for instinctive, emotional and raw motives that generate movement.
Her works are characterized by an attempt to deconstruct the way we perceive body and identity, using visual and formative games.
Her first work on stage took place in 2015 and since then her works have been performed locally and internationally, and have won many awards, including the 2018 Ministry of Culture Award for Young Choreographers.
“‘Within a few years, she found a new independent niche with unique components, different from those prevalent in many of the works of her generation, due to her personal, different body perception, and place in the stage act. Most prominent among them is the use of joint flexibility as a tool available in lifting the body to the stage, as well as in an artist atelier that provides views of the object from unconventional angles sometimes, to the point of presenting a realistic three-dimensional object, as a semi-abstract, like a torso without a head or arms. This is the starting point of an eye that tries to convey to the stage insights from the field of plastic arts.” Ora Brafman
