ATARA – FOR YOU, WHO HAS NOT YET FOUND THE ONE
Atara revolves around different perspectives of orthodox and secular women towards gender roles, female sexuality, and family structures. Drawing from a series of interviews and photographic portraits, the worldviews and experiences of multiple women are shared through reenactment, photography, text, and movement. The work is motivated by the choreographer's own experiences, coming from a mixed secular/orthodox Jewish family, and investigates the tensions within such family structures. A mixed cast of secular and orthodox dancers transforming religious ceremonies, rituals and conversations into contemporary practice and movement.

Reut Shemeshstudied choreography at ArtEZ (NL) and completed a Masters at the Academy of Media Arts (Cologne). Alongside her creative work, she is teaching choreography in several Universities. Shemesh's artistic spectrum ranges from contemporary choreography through experimental film to poetry. Her works were presented in many venues and festivals.
Shemesh will dedicate a research to the exposure of the female Hasidic identity, by looking at embodied repetitive rituals, their social manifestation, their effect on gender roles in regard to her personal biography. Throughout the process of incorporating such rituals in contemporary practice, Shemesh will be using different working strategies such as re-enactment photography, and interviews. The project's aim is the creation of a contemporary group piece, with both, contemporary dancers and femaleorthodox Jews from the local community.
Atara iis a production by Reut Shemesh, K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg in cooperation with tanzhaus nrw.
