YELCHU VELO YIAFU  

 

"וְקוֹיֵ֤ יְהוָה֙ יַחֲלִ֣יפוּ כֹ֔חַ יַעֲל֥וּ אֵ֖בֶר כַּנְּשָׁרִ֑ים יָר֙וּצוּ֙ וְלֹ֣א יִיגָ֔עוּ יֵלְכ֖וּ וְלֹ֥א יִיעָֽפוּ" (ישעיהו, מ, לא)

 

"Once I stood in front of the wailing wall Suddenly,

a pod of birds flew up high Spread their wings,  

like notes that have been released from the heavy stones ..." (Amichai.Y.)

 

The piece 'Yelchu Velo Yiafu' was created by choreographer Hannah Miron in 2014.

It faces women's prayers at the remaining of the holy temple, the wailing wall at the old city of Jerusalem.

The performance and video projection accompanying it deals with the conversation between women and god during their private prayer. In one space and moment, venues appear with god, with the heavy stones of the wailing wall and with the human movement.
