Artists Create a Place
The Passover Adama Festival will take place on April 21-24, 2019
The festival will open the 5X5 project that will bring together artists from different fields for 48 hours of creation.
The project participants will lead different artist classes to expand the creative boundaries and present their final works at the festival.
On Sunday and Monday, April 21-22, the Center will become a creative space for artists/performers/students of the 5X5 project, with the aim of creating a production in 48 hours.
From the evening of 4/22 until the night of 4/24, these works will be presented in parallel to the lessons offered throughout the festival, which will allow each and every person to touch movement, color, sound, construction, words and together create a space in which to adopt the principals of Wabi Sabi from the perspective of reality as it is within us in Sderot.
The 5X5 Project | Two days of creation 5 groups | 5 creators
For artists from all fields, for 48 hours of interdisciplinary creativity
“All things are incomplete
All things include the world itself
Are in a perpetual state of infinite formation or decay “
(Wabi Sabi / Leonard Koren)
During Passover, the festival “Wavi Sabi” will take place at the center of Sderot Adama.The center of Sderot Adama is a dance and creation house that moved about three years ago from Mitzpeh Ramon to Sderot.Wabi Sabi is a Japanese aesthetic approach centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection.
The festival will open in the 5X5 project and will serve as a platform for a 48-hour creative meeting between artists from all over the country and all fields of art. During the two days we will dive into a joint creation process under the influence of the nature of the Wabi Sabi, deepen the work together and be inspired through master classes from different fields. The products will be presented at the opening of the festival to the general public.
We want to believe that leaving the comfort zone and the daily routine of a geographic, cultural and political margin allows for an appeal and reexamination of the creative boundaries. Entering this space is an opportunity to think about joint creation versus individual creation.
The 5X5 project will take place from 21-23 April
The project will be followed by the Wabi Sabi Festival, the content of which will be opened to the participants. We are looking for young and curious artists who are interested in experiencing the creative hothouse.
The participants in the project will be given all the necessary conditions for the work.
[Registration for the project includes a registration fee of NIS 50]
The combination and the enormous profit of confusion, the search and assimilation of various art fields as a way to create an event that has not yet been created. Deep, exciting and tearing with laughter!
The embroidery workshop is designed to enable you to taste the magic of the Ethiopian embroidery. The embroidery group is comprised of 14 Ethiopian women and five volunteers who fell in love with the magnificent colors of Ethiopian embroidery. And in the special group of “embroidery”. The group meets every week for a working day at the Independence Club (under the direction of Tali Angadia) in Sderot. The group members specialize in the traditional Ethiopian embroidery. Their works are characterized by intense color contrasts and combinations of imaginative forms that often stand in opposition to the restraints of the embroideries themselves. Through the colorful threads, the embroideries create a rich and daring world of thoughts and images. The embroidery group operates under the auspices of Gvanim in Sderot and the support of the Social Involvement Unit at Sapir College.

Yoga is a living workshop for examining physical and emotional processes that occur in the tension between moving and stopping. The school to which I belong, as a practitioner and a teacher, is based on transitions between movement sequences (vinyasa) and static situations (asanas), with emphasis on breathing that paces the movement.
In the workshop we will focus on the possibilities created in the body and the feelings that arise different situations where the movement is forced to deal with various limitations by posture, characteristics, and abilities. Between movement and limitation, we will seek the potential for creating the next movement and try to understand these moments as a principle for practice and care, in yoga in particular and in life in general.

We are creatures of habit. Our body movement is also influenced by familiar habits and patterns and sometimes we forget that we have the right to choose. In the workshop we will try to observe habits which are one of many possibilities. We will try to identify the choices we face within the existing movement and try to celebrate the joy of discovery.

My closeness with my mother was always about fabrics. I do not remember anything else.
The first feeling of partnership between me and Mother was related to the fabrics. The essence of femininity that had never been spoken was covered with pieces of cloth. One day in the tiny kitchen, on the Formica table lay a cauldron of boiling water with a tin box in it. It was a ceremony for my mother, I became a teen. Initiation. With a dull knife, Mother opened the lid of the tin box. On the Formica table were three pieces of neatly folded white cloth. Mother stirred the red-yellow liquid with the knife, slowly melting to the desired softness, wrapping around the knife, ordering me to put a foot on the chair and lift the sleeve of the trouser leg, and so without warning I felt the hot sticky liquid spread along my legs. Mother, took a piece of cloth and stretched it on the front of my leg, make sure there are no air pockets, she said as she ran her hands intently over the cloth, and … the sharp pain pierced, Mother showed me the wax-soaked cloth, everything was off, there was no hair left on my leg, she said proudly.
“Savages” is a choreographic work that searches for circular motion, that does not hold on to anything. Our pain is private, it closes us and on us, the circular movement, allows us to let go at any given moment. We have no way to reach compassion without letting go. Sometimes we cling, we do not let go, we rush to the finishing line, does it exist?
On the line of the circle we can have both forward and regressive movements, both of which can exist in full, side by side. Like the sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. The same movement that creates growth that is deep and quiet; its strength does not harm me or others. Cyclic movement. Breathing movement. A comforting movement.
In the Savages performance, the preoccupation with the hair as a metaphor for the wildness of freedom, as opposed to submission to the dictates of fashion or social-cultural pressure, the plucking of hair as an act of painful and unpleasant aesthetics accompanied by a sense of natural disgust, when and why we remove underarms hair and shave our legs. And how does this relate to our culture, our religion, and the social environment in which we live? Do we have a choice?
The symbolic meaning of hair as a source of strength and abundance, especially for men who are struggling with their lives with fear of baldness and hair loss. In this context, I felt that “baldness” was more interesting than “hair”. I imagined Samson the hero (who is also described as carrying the gates of Gaza on his shoulders – that is, he has a direct connection to the place where we work at) – that when he lost his hair, he also lost his strength and vitality.
The sound track was created by Jonathan Magon and it brings together the Western rhythm to the infinite, desert, of the East, allows to create root’s stability against the infinite movement of the branch in the wind, the same wind that can be embodied as a hurricane, shattering and uprooting or as a cool wind heralding the end of a heat wave, the same wind between destruction and relief, so is the human spirit, so is the human movement.
“Gut feelings” – a personal search of the connection between the digestive system and intuition and internal feelings. Why abdomen? The abdomen is motionless. Waves of nourishment. A hall of transformation. A biological microcosm with which we interact and develop. A central communication center of the body. One of the main tubes in our body is the gut. It is the source of many of the internal organs in our bodies. A tube with two openings that are intimate and influential to our bodies. What comes in, what comes out, a sense of fullness along with a sense of emptiness.
We will listen, touch, produce sounds that drive out body and affect the various body systems, follow their footsteps, write and rest within the waves of effortless movement. We will restore trust in our stomach sensations. Plunge within, curious to find out what’s in us.
What will we accomplish in the workshop? We will learn to produce sounds that benefit the digestive system and other body systems.
As a result, your body will become stronger, broader, experience new range sensations, more creative, and gain instinctual and physical emotional insights. It is a practice that offers a unique and original way to motivate your smart body. The regaining autonomy of our body, its movement, and our gut feelings.
The workshop is taught by Tamar Levin – dancer and developer, systematic constellation therapist, family oriented, movement teacher, B.dance researcher, and “Sense-Sessions” Dance Academy and Systemic Constellation School graduate.

What traces does dance leaves? What remains of the movement in space? How did the flash of memory burned in the hearts of the spectators look like? Dance is a transitory art. Painting is the art of commemoration. What happens when the passing and the eternal meet? Zazua is a creative research of the passing moment which combines movement and painting; under the artistic direction of the action painter Eitan Dor-Shab, in collaboration with Gilad Goral of the Adama dance company, musician Nir Yonasi and a group of artists. As part of the festival, they will open an experimental complex of open workshops, inviting you to take an active part in the revelation. Be dancers, be painters, be musicians, be poets of movement … Get ready to get dirty with paunt and come to stretch the boundaries of creative moments. Photographers and video artists are invited to take an active part in the experience.

‘Mucirque’ is a multi-disciplinary project that combines contemporary circus with live music.
The circus artist, Sophia Oltmanns (Germany), combines club-juggling with modern dance and acrobatics. The musician, Juliano Abramovay (Brazil/Italy), is specialized in world music and guitar.
Together, they develop a language that interweaves juggling and guitar, creating a unique mixture of music, circus, dance, acrobatics and physical theatre.
The result is a story of convergence, transgression, rejection, reconciliation and power games. Fast and slow moments alternate on this family -friendly show that connect music lovers with circus fans.
