First things 1st | Am I
This evening is dedicated with love to Nira Paz
First things 1st
A world where there is no distance between it and our knowledge of it.
How then to speak about it.
When the foundations of society are undermined, and spaces of existence are reduced.
Perhaps we are left to be entirely focused on tuning ourselves inward, as one tunes an instrument to achieve precision.
First things 1st is the first chapter out of five stances. In this iteration Getman uses words and peaks between what is being said and what is said between the lines. Matter, form, action, object and representation, commandment and request, nothingness and Nothing. Brick by brick, a personal attempt to touch the humane - a visible trap.

The work is supported by Derrida Dance Centre, Bulgaria, and Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts, Israel.
Am I is a personal creation for the Soloist Talia Paz. The dance movements are part of Talia Paz's repertoire, which she embodied and performed throughout the last 30 years. Various forms of expression are revisited and examined. Deconstructing the text of the famous tune from the chorus line "Let Me Dance For You" into fragments of words and
breath, encourages Talia to reformulate her artistic presence and skills. Straddling the line between personal physicality to spoken text and the uncertain relations evolving on stage between these triggers Talia Paz to challenge her current physical and emotional state.
