Two parallel and mutually influenced processes take place. A mirror image unfolds, chasing its own tail until it peels off. Laxation becomes tension, victim becomes aggressor, surrender becomes resistance, and pain changes to rage and vice versa.
Laxation, a solo piece, was created for the 2021 Israel Festival, inspired by “Slingshot Girl,” a short video by the artist Tamar Getter, in which a flash movement of stretching a slingshot unfolds over 8 minutes, focusing on the stressful action while suspending its outcome, the desired relief.
