Studio Israel: Conversation Series – From Within and Without
Hosted By: Schusterman Center for Israel Studies Brandeis University
Tamar Borer has been creating and performing for over 20 years. Her background combines classical ballet technique, modern dance, dance traditions from various cultures, including Balinese and Mexican, and movement therapies and practices such as Feldenkrais.
A car accident in 1990 left Tamar paralyzed in both legs. She has continued to evolve her work since then, and has performed at many dance festivals across Israel and Europe. She was awarded the Buchman Hyman “Promising Artist Award,” and the distinguished Artist Award bestowed by the Ballet Master Albert Gaubier fund. She was also awarded the “Grace Award” (Hebrew – Ot Ha-Chesed) for her empowering and inspiring work with various physically and situationally challenged communities.
Studio Israel is a new series, chaired by Caron Tabb, that gives an insider’s view of Israeli society through an array of contemporary creative female voices of diverse Israeli backgrounds. Each one-hour conversation features art and expertise that shed light on important social, cultural, and political issues in Israel today.
The series is a collaboration between the Hadassah-Brandeis Institute, Jewish Arts Collaborative, and the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies. It is made possible with generous support from CJP Arts & Culture.
