My Life in Excel

A dance performance and performance lecture in one that dissects the emotional and physical reality behind cold data in a melancholic, powerful and slightly absurd way.

Reality in boxes

Due to a legal dispute over the care of her two children, a mother kept track of her life in an Excel sheet for two years. A reality in compartments, a true story, but at the same time, far from the reality of her daily life. How do these cold data relate to the emotional, mental and physical memories of that time? Choreographer Liat Waysbort is back on stage after years and reflects on this personal period in her life with dance and text. Memories from that time - frustration, disbelief, broken dreams, strength, fighting spirit and feelings of absurdity - become palpable. Big data specialist Dana Ganot stands next to Liat on stage and dissects the relationship between data and our daily existence in a sobering way.

Bitter Sweet Dance | Liat Waysbort

Bitter Sweet Dance uses personal stories to tell a larger story about the world around us. Disturbing topics in society run like an undercurrent through the highly physical multidisciplinary performances that penetrate every fibre of the body. This led to works such as Titanic and Gioia Live. BSD subverts clichés around age, gender and physicality, stretches definitions of beauty and makes everything human tangible. 'It grabs you by the senses'.

There will be a discussion after the performance.
