Galit Criden (1986; Tel-Aviv/London) creates choreographies, territories, where knowledge can be learned and contained, where she gets the opportunity to go back re-organize and repeat what is already possible. She uses choreographic means to reconstruct and learn about typical human behaviors, to challenge fixed ideas about the moving body a shared space. Galit Works with a strong emphasis on empathy and the sense of a community in order to utilize new ways to relate to one another. She is a graduate of The School of Visual Theater in Jerusalem (2009-2013) and the David Yellin Academic College of Education in Jerusalem. (2009-2013). Currently, she is doing her Masters at Goldsmiths University, Contemporary Art Theory. 2019-20.
