IF ONE KEEPS WALKING - NEXT STEPS!
Huge thanks to everyone who was involved in the research and development phase of Hagit's new work If One Keeps Walking. Altogether the company has worked alongside 85 participatory performers, each of whom have volunteered their time and substantial energy to the creation of something very special... and very successful
Our sharings at Laban Theatre and Sadler's Wells were completely 'sold out', despite our adding an extra show at the latter to cope with the demand. If you weren't there, don't despair - here's a trailer to give you an idea of what was shared.
In the meantime, we'll be working towards firming up dates for UK touring activity. Watch this space for a performance near you soon, and please do be in touch if you're a cultural space and interested in bringing this fantastic new work to your audiences.
IF ONE KEEPS WALKING - iN NORWAY!
The company is delighted to announce a successful bid for funding from Arts Council Norway and Stavanger Kommune to support presentation of If One Keeps Walking in Autumn 2019 - we can't wait!
We will premiere the work in Stavanger in September 2019 and in Oslo October 2019.

Our Spring 2018 tour just finished and we were excited and moved to see so many of you joining us around the UK. Free Falling - a double bill has been on a national and international tour for almost two years. And it is time to put it on hold and to start something new. Free Falling - a double bill will be back on tour in 2019.
Here are some thoughts and reviews audience members shared with us:
"It was honestly something INCREDIBLE to witness. I was smiling the whole way through at delight in how exquisitely crafted it was. I admire your committment to honing something truly excellent and alive and breathing".
"I haven’t been so moved by anything for such a long time. It was all so incredibly simple and so deep at the same time. As probably every member of the audience I felt that this piece speaks about me, my weaknesses, my desires, my fears… All dancers were just extremely beautiful, I watched them revealing themselves with a big respect and in amazement."
"This whole experience left me feel awakened..."
And here is a quote from the Exuent Magazine: "Contemporary dance, like its visual art equivalent, can have a bad reputation.... it doesn’t really seem like the people speaking the language want you to know it. Hagit Yakira’s work stands out because it radiates generosity. It feels like it wants you to understand, to share with you its ideas...". For the whole article please click here
