In her work, choreographer Stav Yeini fundamentally rethinks the codes of dance and performance.
She creates multi-sensory spaces that allow and encourage the physical participation of the visitors. Through a sensorial choreography of sounds, smells, images, alchemical processes and indirect touch, she reactivates dormant, often forgotten brain paths for sensing, being and memory.
This first test version of The Senders creates an immersive, synesthetic experience that stimulates curiosity and wonder and allows you to experience reality in an unseen yet amplified way. The work emphasizes inclusion, empathy and a profound listening to non-human life forms. In this way it wants to bring about an evolution towards a sensory way of knowledge production and the possibility of a new world beyond the economic and ecological crisis.
