Affected: Dancers Research Group
Dancers are a pack of embodied knowledge. This research group invites dancers to consciously investigate their beCompany, the way they mediate affectivity, trans-individuality, reality and art. The research group went through four guided experiences led by Ido Feder, Bosmat Nossam, Smadar Yaaron and Michal Samama (see below), where their pack's pact is cherished, polished and honed as they realize and perform and observe their beCompany process.
