Artist Talk with Hadar Ahuvia
October 23 at 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
As part of its Friday Free Hour Series of Artist Talks, the Department of Dance presents choreographer and performer Hadar Ahuvia, who will speak on creating work that investigates Israeli folk dancing.
Hadar Ahuvia moves between identities, reverberating from ruptures enacted within three generations of diaspora from Europe, to Israel/Palestine and the United States. A white Jewish Ashkenazi artist, her work reshapes Israeli folk and traditional liturgy, proposing embodied repair, through choreographic and vocal practice. As such it is an homage and break from a lineage of Zionist cultural workers.
Ahuvia was 2018 Bessie nominee for Outstanding “Breakout” Choreographer, and named a Dance Magazine “25 to Watch in 2019.” She is founding member of Jewish Voice for Peace Artists Council and organizes with Jews for Racial and Economic Justice.
