How we dance The Warehouse 2 venue in the Jaffa Port will host the HoWeDoIt program of dance shows as part of the Yotzer Otzer (Creator-Curator) series, from December 31 to January 4.
The run opens with A Piece of Me, by Italian-born dancer and choreographer Nicola Mascia and his Israeli-born partner in the Matanicola dance company, Mata Zamir. Mascia and Zamir perform the work, which is based on various fragments that started out as a selfexploratory work and developed into a searching investigation of human loneliness and longing for completeness. There will be two performances of A Piece of Me, on December 31 and January 1, both at 9 p.m.
The next slot, on January 2 (9 p.m.) features a variety of works by Yasmeen Godder, performed by Dalia Chaimsky, Shuli Enosh and Yonatan Bar-Or. The thematic strand running through the works is examination of how the inner voices, inside ourselves and from society, control us. Godder’s Any-Body-Home work also looks at the subject of loneliness, and how to listen to our body.
The closing slot, on January 4 (9 p.m.), features a work titled Ghost Exercise, created by Godder and Itzik Giuli. It is a coproduction between Godder’s company and Theater Freiberg in Germany, and is performed by Monica Gillette and Amit Hadari.

White and quiet Yoel Barkan’s exhibition “White Silence” opens at Artists’ House in Tel Aviv on January 2. The Brussels-born Barkan, 75, began painting 10 years ago and initially opted for a multihued approach to his new craft, with added surrealist elements.
“White Silence,” which is curated by Rachel Sukman, displays Barkan’s more recently adopted minimalist abstract mind-set, which largely feeds of a monochrome palette. The works in the show often bleed into the sides off the canvass, offering the viewer something of a three-dimensional spectacle.
The exhibition will run until January 25.
