Ner Rishon

Today is Ner Rishon, the first day of Hanucka. I stood next to mom & dad and we did the little ceremony of lighting the candle and saying the blessings. The best thing about Hanucka is that it’s not Christmass. In fact, the absence of Christmass here in the unholy parts of Israel (Tel Aviv, Agur) feels just great.

Knowing that i am going to be in Freiburg from February until April is of course very exciting but i also feel that i have a lot of Huzpa to make such plans (why work when you can travel around the world and dance?). I feel like the whole adventure is about to start on Tuesday when i go to the north of Israel for the CI festival, or a part of it. For anyone who hasn’t been to Israel and who is into CI or just movement improvisation i can say that there is a lot to do and experience in Israel (mostly in Tel Aviv but even in other places). From Gaga through Five Rythms, to plain old Contact Improvisation. I also like the sometimes more explicit and clear way in which some teachers here lead in introductions and classes.
