Exploring human ecological footprint, dependency and the capacity to regenerate, choreographer Noa Wertheim observes the source of each movement and its effect on the environment.
Yama, in Hebrew, means water enclosed by land – captive waters. Boiling waters captured and confined. The pressure chamber simmers, and it can lead to a terrible eruption. The skies in the creation are black and dark, but within them lies a white point of hope.
“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.”
(Genesis 1, 6)
“In the beginning there was nothingness and God but waved his hand
And from the endless void there sprang the beauty of the land
And high above the canyon walls the diamond stars were new
And breezes blew from nothingness and herbs and grasses grew
And silent creatures roamed the Earth and multiplied their kind
And man was but a molecule that God had left behind.”
