Snake Shall I Become (the 4th hour) is a project that deals with the mythological interrelationships between the human arm and the snake. Both are a central part of the Egyptian Hieroglyphs and are inextricably linked in the biblical story of the Staff of Moses and Pharaoh's sorcerer.
As part of the project, I examined the close connection between the figure of the snake and the development of the old Egyptian script. Inspired by it I created a Movement Notation that focuses specifically on the arm.
In the exhibition human scale copper sculptures are displayed beside parts of the arm choreography are projected on different screens.
The choreography was created in collaboration with the dancers Ortal Atsbaha and Dor Frank, and in collaboration with the snakes Saharan horned viper no. 47 and Saharan horned viper no. 48.
The exhibition was supported by Mifal HaPayis and the foundation for Independent Creators
