- SYNOPSIS -

In ATARA – For you, who has not yet found the one, Cologne-based choreographer Reut Shemesh directs her gaze onto the world views and different perspectives of Jewish orthodox and secular women and their positions towards each other.

Reut Shemesh grew up in a mixed secular/orthodox family and investigates the gender roles and tensions within such family structures. Drawing from a series of interviews and photographic portraits, a mixed cast of orthodox and secular dancers perform and transform re-enactments, religious ceremonies, rituals, and conversations into a striking contemporary work.

ATARA asks what femininity, female sexuality and their places in society could be, and invites you to examine your own clichés, prejudices and lifestyles.
