Mind the Road
Mind the Road is a multimedia performance for two dancers and video projections. Psychotherapy in it’s widest form is the inspiration for the performance, which goal is to research changes in perspective in human relations. The piece is dealing with questions such as how does empathy work and is it possible to see yourself through the eyes of somebody else? The dancers are supported by live recorded video images captured by mini-cameras that are attached to their body on eye level.
“Choreographer, Liat Magnezy, externalized and gave life to the most internal dynamics of the therapy scene. From the first moment I felt restless, excited and hypnotized. It touched me as a human being and confronted me with how I am in contact with others and what is intimacy for me. Most important, it clashed into my reality of being a therapist.” (Dr. Motti Cohen / Psychotherapist)
