Ziv Frenkel

Steps we have already taken, steps we are taking now – they will be part of our memory tomorrow. The process of remembering stands in Ziv Frenkel’s choreography ›Encoding><Decoding‹ the focus. Frenkel understands remembering as encoding, the retrieval of memory as decoding. The act of walking becomes the starting point of the choreography and translates remembering into a physical process. The steps are symbolic of the eternal movement forward towards a future that is inconceivable without the past, the previous steps.

Walking becomes a cycle. Israeli-born dancer Ziv Frenkel creates a resonant space in an intense, personal engagement with a concise part of Jewish culture: the symbol of the circle and the weekly remembrance and processing found in the ritual of lighting a candle for Shabbat. In this way, this Durational Performance becomes a meditative place that one can enter and leave according to one’s own feelings.

›Encoding><Decoding‹ was developed as part of the film installation ‘1001 Lights’ by Mouvement Perpétuel Montréal, which was presented as a guest performance by steptext dance project in 2021. Sponsored by the Senator for Culture Bremen
