»Practicing Empathy #1«, the first study of this series, focuses on the relationship and connectivity of the per­formers as they delve into a score of repetitive physical and vocal rituals, exposing their inner emotional land­scapes. The audience is invited to sit around the perfor­mance space and watch as they play with creating an environment where empathy can be explored as a way to support, encourage, and react to the depth and com­plexity of their own and other‘s needs.

Since early 2019, the Yasmeen Godder Com­pany has been deeply involved in a research project titled »Practicing Empathy«, out of which a series of outcomes are being created. Each of the works explores the notion of empathy through various perspectives and approaches, attempting to look at what opens us up emotionally.
