Savyon was a fellow at Akademie Schloss Solitude (DE) as a performance artist; won the Danceweb award for promising choreographers and dancers at Impulstanz Festival (AT); won the “Outstanding Dancer” status by the Ministry of Culture (IL); won Mifal HaPais grants; won the Ministry of Culture support for independent artists. Her studio is located in Tel-Aviv as a long-term residency by Tel-Aviv municipality. She studied at Kelim Choreography Center (practice and theory) and at Vertigo Dance Program. 

She thinks of choreography in the broadest sense, Expended Choreography.  Choreography as an opportunity for humanity to be, to be embodied and to perform - fully, powerfully and vulnerably. Her works are mostly Practice Based Choreography in order to extract the liveness and the required attention. Her works touch different contents, take different forms (and non-forms), different modes of expression and different relationships eith the audience. However, there is a delicate connecting thread that moves between the works, in the fertile field of being, in the interface between the materiality of the body and the becoming of the body and the spirituality of the body.

Savyon Shenhar Live Video Looper

Live Video Looper

Performative Innovative Technology

Between 2018-2020 Savyon developed an original technology in collaboration with Dr. Eyal Gros and consulted by Yuval Shenhar. She called this technology Live Video Looper. Just like music loopers, layers are being recorded and added on top of each other in real time. But here, the object being duplicated is not sound, but video: Savyon performs a movement or action with her body - it is recorded in real time, during the show, this is the first layer. This recording is repeated over and over in the projection. Now Savyon performs another movement or action, it is also recorded. Now the two layers exist together, simultaneously, in the projection. Savyon continues to the next layer, which is also recorded (or maybe not?...) and so on. So, parallel to the living body there is the world of multiple replicated bodies existing in the projection. Full Article
