Yasmeen Godder

Yasmeen Godder was born in Jerusalem and raised in New York City. Godder moved back to Israel in 1999 and has been based in Jaffa since. Her work has received both local and international acclaim and prizes. In recent years, her work focuses on the audience’s experience, re-defining the emotional and physical “meeting” that happens in a performative setting. Her company has two community projects: “Moving Communities”- weekly dance classes for people living with Parkinson’s disease, and “Na’ot Ma’Ba’ad” (Moving Together) dance workshops which bring together Arab and Jewish women, to create a joint, bilingual, and safe space for connection.
