Rotem Weissmann

Choreographer, Dancer, Performer

Rotem Weissman has developed and deepened her original movement language in each of her works. Her tone is characterized by coordinated articulations, joint isolation, and a deliberate interplay between tension and relaxation. Rotem explores the potential of utilizing the body's joints and edges as engines for movement, expanding the body's range beyond physical limits. She is  deeply intrigued by the possibilities of the body expressing its fantasies through movement.

 Her exploration invites openness and active interpretation, both in the performer and the viewer. For Weissman, every body has the potential to manifest a unique landscape, an exteriorization to be discovered from within the body's own somatic history.
