‘If One Keeps Walking’ is about traveling, pace, intimacy and the beauty of details, letting people connect to themselves, to others, to their surroundings, and to the empowerment of movement.
This latest work by Hagit Yakira dance is a site-responsive, experiential performance event with five exceptional dancers and a participating cast of up to 50 local people of all ages and abilities. Boundaries between audience, performers and dancers are blurred to create a uniquely human, heartwarming and inclusive experience.
This performance is presented in collaboration with Den Norske Opera & Ballett.
