Based in Israel, Lilach Livne (1986) is an artist who focuses on the relationship between
choreography, philosophy, religion, healing & community. Her practice is one of constant
research and experimentation; she creates performances, lectures, public acts, meetings,
prayer books and video art. Livne suggests new self-perception techniques, called "The Non-Image" and "The Darkened Body", which she believes can fulfill dance's potential to create manifested philosophy and a transformative mix between art & reality.
Livne presented her works at the 20th Biennale of Sydney, Salonul De Proiecte Gallery Bucharest, Coventry University UK, CCA TLV and other festivals & art galleries in Israel & Europe. Livne taught at Impulstanz Festival in Vienna, lectures in different dance institutes in Israel and is working with "Youth At Risk" frameworks where she's incorporating her artistic research of "body-image" & "meeting the other" into social work.
Livne lately published her practice book "Prayer for the Abstract" through Circadian, an art-literature organization in Berlin. In 2018 she started a collaboration with the choreographer Robert Steijn and a project collaboration with Goshka Macuga, Rūta Junevičiūtė & Emmilou Rößling.
Livne studied Philosophy at Tel-Aviv University, Choreography at the School for the Arts in Amsterdam SNDO, and Experimental Dance at SEAD Salzburg. In 2012 she received the DanceWEB scholarship in the frame of ImPulsTanz Festival.
