A work by Hagit Yakira in collaboration with three more performers, a musician, a scenographer and a dramaturge.
Inspired by the different origins of her peers, Hagit takes Sunday Morning to be the place of memories of childhood, of family, of home, and of fear of loss. Through evoking these memories (and feelings) she wishes to explore the emergence of individual identity, and at the same time the persistence of longing to belong.

“… a vigorous, piquant intimacy to a Sunday Morning where four estimable performers disagree about distant memories of childhood, playing snippets of piano as they go. The particularity of each character was emphatically achieved and Yakira imbued the movement sequences with a distinctive flow. Resolution! finished on a high. ”
— Graham Watts, The Place, Resolution!, February 2011
“Plaudits to Hagit Yakira for Sunday Morning ,a serio-comic quartet of dramatic absurdities built upon familial repression, aggression and caring.”
— Donald Hutera, Dance Europe, April 2011
