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.
