Biography

Hagit is a choreographer, performer and dance teacher based in London. She graduated from the Music and Dance Academy in Jerusalem, Israel in 1999 and completed her MA in European Theatre Dance at Trinity Laban, London in 2006. She has also been a qualified Dance Movement Therapist since 2003, and she is working now on her PhD in Choreography at Trinity Laban, researching the notion of choreographing autobiographies. After years of performing and teaching, she has been recently developing her own choreographic work. So far she has created six works, two of them were awarded: first prize for ‘Oh Baby’ in the ‘Kajaani Choreography Competition’, Finland 2009, and second prize for ‘Somewhere between a self and an other’ in the ‘Burgos New York Choreography Competition’ (New Dance Trend Category), Spain 2007.
She has toured in numerous festivals and dance platforms in the UK, the rest of Europe, and in Israel. She has also been choreographing for different companies and institutions around Europe and the UK as well as leading performance projects and workshops for both professional dancers and the community. Hagit is a teacher and a guest choreographer at Trinity Laban in the One Year Programme, and at The Place in the Community Education Programme and since summer 2011 she has been giving workshops at ImPulsTanz, Vienna.
Hagit’s aim is to develop a personal approach, which is based on close collaboration with various artists working within different art forms. In her work she explores different aspects of human relationships, by playing with fiction and reality, emotion and feeling, and by shifting between drama and humour. Her approach in general as well as to the movement research, is based on autobiography and emotions, and is being informed by her background as a dance movement therapist alongside her background as a performer and a choreographer.
