MASTERCLASS TOMER HEYMANN
8 SEPT, 12PM - 4PM
Leonida St. 9-11
In the documentary workshop “Between Cinema and Dance; Between Documentary and Fiction" – Masterclass with the Creator of MR. GAGA about Dreams and Dignity, Heymann shares the complex artistic choices he made while filming and editing the film, the connection (mostly in the director’s mind) between Naharin’s personal biography and his dance creations that are interwoven in it, the link between art, politics and freedom of speech, and the reasons that made him reopen the film three times after it had already been screened in public and the production phase seemed to be over.
Highlights of the film, including parts that were not included in the final version, will be screened during the workshop, and Heymann will share with the audience the basis for each such artistic decision. The workshop allows the participants not only to enter the director’s mind, but also to understand and feel Naharin’s dance creations in a different, fresh way.
