»Practicing Empathy #3« is a full­length solo for Yasmeen Godder and the third creation in her »Practicing Empathy« series. In this creation, she examines the concept and sensation of empathy and how it relates to her own body and personal experiences. The work travels between a real­time document of the past years’ experience of iso­lation, limitations, and internal discovery, as well as gen­erating continuous mechanisms of survival.

Yasmeen Godder was born in Jerusalem and studied dance in New York City. She has lived and worked in Israel since 1999. As a freelance choreographer, she has been tour­ing worldwide since 1997 — including Lincoln Center Festival, Tokyo International Festival, HAU in Berlin, the Place Theater London, Montpellier Dance Festival, tanzhaus nrw, Kunstenfestivaldesarts and Theater Freiburg. In 2001, she won the prestigious Bessie Award, followed by other international awards. In her studio in Jaffa, a research and produc­tion site, she teaches and organizes numer­ous projects with the Arab­Jewish communi­ty, among others.
