    Kinetica Movement of the Nadine Bommer Dance Company

    Open Level
    Saturdays 11:00AM-12:30PM through August 31

    The Nadine Bommer Dance Company

    The Nadine Bommer Dance Company was established in Rishon LeZion, Israel, in 1994 by choreographer Nadine Bommer. Company dancers are graduates of the Academy, nurtured over the years by Bommer herself. Profoundly different in style from the Israeli scene, the dance company brings a distinctive new genre to the world of dance theater with its “Animato Art” method. “Animato” is a word born from “animation” and constitutes a source of evident inspiration in Bommer’s work, manifesting in its rhythms, perspectives, and humor. In 2007 Bommer completed her development of the Animato Art method which defines the companies stylistic character. The company’s movement language, “Kinetica,” was developed by Bommer and draws inspiration from the sea. It builds on following the kinetic energy (the energy of movement in space). Connecting with this energy creates floating watery movement which has no defining form. In Bommer’s creative works, it links to figures and situations which surface from her imagination, the outcome is “Animato Art”. Diverse images convey narratives through the vibrant movement. This symbiotically integrates the worlds of dance and theater while infusing content from the worlds of animation and comedy. Company dancers are not mere technical tools but a fascinating individualized performance as they dive into sensorial worlds changing character. Animato’s authentic style creates engaging energy. Characters and situations single out dancers in a way that has become an identifier of Bommer’s work. A dancer’s extraordinary belief in the character and situation causes the audience to connect to the experience. The honest moments occurring on the stage, create a direct link between the audience and the company.
