A Study on Effort (2015)

Choreographer: Bobbi Jene Smith

A study on Effort is a research of how effort meets movement and sound. It consists of ten tasks that question physical, emotional and metaphoric efforts. The work attempts to reveal the pleasure and pervasiveness of effort, decoupling it from the concept of burden, and show how deeply connected effort is to our most basic desires.

Premiered in Israel Museum as part of MASH festival.
