TRANSCENDING, for Peace is an invitation to reshape our perception of the other. The violence of the image and the fear of the seen create barriers and separations. In this 75-minute temporary community, audiences and performers will join hands, dance, pray and strive for an abstract way of being.

Based in Israel, Lilach Livne is a choreographer and performance artist who focuses on the relationship between art, philosophy, new technology and community. Her works explore themes relating to gender, religion, pop culture’s image obsession, body perception and the abstraction as a political agenda. Her practice is one of constant research and experimentation; she creates performances, lectures, public acts, meetings, prayer books and video art – all with the aim of reaching the ‘non image’.
