Of course, you are also welcome to join in the case this person is not available.

During the workshop we offer the participating couples a moment of meeting each other in a different way, experiencing movement and creating together; a creative and curious quality time and a great chance for you as a couple, to make your own human document using movement and film.

The love-ism project site just went online


August 27th, 2013

Choreographer Mor Shani is working on “Love-ism”. Love-ism is a long term study inspired by the book “Art of Loving” by Erich Fromm. In this study Shani wishes to challenge the perception and liquidity of the agreed upon, the sublime and the condemned. He asks: “when do supreme ideas about love like care, mutuality and dependency stop being sacred and become sinful? And what is it that distinguishes one kind of love from another?”

Video artist, Paul Sixta expands the conceptual grounds of Love-ism in close collaboration with Shani. He challenges the discussion by making the process of creation transparent, and is creating a film about the “Politics of Intimacy”, researching the human experience of meeting significant others in and out of the studio. The stage product and the film will be presented as one piece.
