“The possession of firm and confident opinions, urges and lusts, owning a permanent and identified character - all amounts to the horror of turning our soul into fact, into material, into its own externalization. Life is a delicate, fluid state of unknowing, unknowing about all things and about yourself.” Fernando Pessoa
For too many years I’ve been practicing control over my body.
But since when is it legit to rise over my body
Calling it mine
A body which is nature, Infinite, wild.
"Another dancer that easily kept the audience on their toes was Roni Chadash with her new solo, a new chapter in her ongoing quest to decipher the mystery of her own body.. she developed an original somatic language, using her impressive flexibility to activate and manipulate her own performing moves,
"Chadash is endowed with extraordinary flexibility, which allows her to invent new and unimagined ways to move. In an impressive display of physical intelligence, performed with a rare combination of skill, confidence and modesty, Chadash moves along the length and breadth of the stage.."
"And the bizarre beauty of this expressive, twisting, gushing body that exudes rage and yearning sweeps us to try and understand this mystery of the body - an endless and simultaneous archive, the absolute repository"
"As a result, the organizing principle of the movement seems to be the observation of a new inward into the musculoskeletal system of her body, and a deep listening to the motives that arise from it and form into physical action."
