This performance of Dance & Harp allows for a complexity of layers and meeting points between two soloists, sharing a joint vision. Water is the first part of a project-in-making called "The Star Project", led by Tali Glaser.
The water on earth is fixed in quantity and it changes its states of matter, moving in space, on earth and on its soil. Water constitutes a large percentage of each body, flora and fauna. It is the fluid of life.
For the work "Water", Shamel chose to challenge the qualities of water, using the physical Gaga movement language Of Ohad Naharin, with qualities of water such as floatation, subtle resistance and gravitation, along with airy qualities and nostalgia.
