Idit Her­man is a dancer, chore­o­g­ra­ph­er, per­for­mance artist, and founder and artis­tic direc­tor of the Cli­pa The­ater in Tel Aviv. Her reper­toire ranges from solo per­for­mances to com­pre­hen­sive works in the­aters, muse­ums, and pub­lic spaces. Her most recent works are baroque pro­duc­tions with lav­ish use of stage design, props, cos­tumes, light, and sound.


“For sev­er­al years, I have been dream­ing of tak­ing my daugh­ter abroad to give her at least some edu­ca­tion out­side of Israel. The ener­gy I per­son­al­ly feel here is increas­ing­ly hate­ful and aggres­sive and I wish for her to expe­ri­ence a view from the out­side. What keeps me most from doing so is the stress of mov­ing homes. What to do with our home? With our cats? Can we trust her beloved piano to some­one else?”


For the home.frankfurt.telaviv project, Her­man will devel­op a par­tic­i­pa­to­ry instal­la­tion and use the stress of a fic­ti­tious move from Israel to Ger­many to cre­ate an arti­fi­cial but inti­mate bond­ing process. The enor­mous task of mov­ing abroad will be achieved togeth­er with all of the artists involved in the project.
