“To the woman he said: <...> and your desire shall be to your husband, and he shall rule over you.”
Goofy in Hebrew means my body. The choreographer raises a question about the meaning of these two words together, and check if we could really own our bodies. In our modern reality where people are often treating each other bodies with no compassion, it becomes even more relevant. “Goofy“ is an attempt of a body to realize the point it has lost its innocence, and make the transition from an amorphous structure of bones and muscles to a known image of a woman.
Roni Chadash was born and raised in Israel, where she received her education in dance.
