MAKOM

Vertigo Dance Company World Premiere 2022 | by Noa Wertheim

A perpetual search of a return to the place that brings us closer to ourselves

Makom in Hebrew means “place” and describes a real or imaginary location. Makom can also be a spiritual refuge, a home, wherever.

Noa Wertheim’s new creation Makom deals with a world out of balance and therefore unfolds a movement language that strives from the centre outwards, to the extremities and to extremes. It‘s a perpetual quest for the restoration of equilibrium. Form and content are the main notions: Form stands for the human body, the outer structure. The content is the inner essence, our soul. The choreography outlines polarities, between an inside and an outside, between right and left, construction and destruction. Only towards the end a unification of the extremes is strived for, also symbolized by the set design: wooden sticks (a material from nature) are put together to form a bridge. The bridge enables relationship and communication and allows an encounter in the centre, a return to Makom.   (written by | Silke Meier-Brösicke)
