This 2 hour Master Class, first of its kind, provides an introduction to the unique movement language devised by choreographer and artistic director Noa Wertheim over the years with the Vertigo Dance Company.
This particular language has been influenced and inspired by a variety of dance techniques and mind-body disciplines. Based on classical ballet and Release it converses with contact improvisation and incorporates the wisdom of Eastern martial arts like Tai Chi and Chi Gong as well as Jewish philosophy and spiritual teaching.
This is an opportunity to join Noa Wertheim on an enchanted journey to explore the sources of this fascinating movement language and elements from the repertoire of the Vertigo Dance Company.
A multi-talented artist, choreographer and dancer, Noa (47) was born in the USA and grew up in Netanya, Israel, where she started dancing at Esther’s Studio. Although her religious upbringing delayed her pursuit of a dancing career, in 1990 she completed her studies at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. Noa performed with the Jerusalem Tamar Dance Company, where she met Adi Sha’al her partner in life and in dance. Together they founded the Vertigo Dance Company. Noa is a numerous award winner, including the 1998 Ministry of Culture award for young choreographers, the 2003 Landau Prize for the Performing Arts and the 2012 Israel Culture Minister award for her choreography of “Birth of the Phoenix”.
