Established by choreographer Elad Schechter in Jerusalem in 2012 and dedicated to his choreographic vision. Schechter’s creations emphasize historical and cultural identity as a central narrative. His artistic vision draws inspiration from the uniqueness of Jerusalem. The works are catered to aim towards the diverse audience in the city and represent Jerusalem’s multicultural coexistence in Israel and around the world.
Choreography often serves as a tool for expanding human body perception and deepening connections between humans. Complex, layered and professional local art has the ability to deepen, excite and re-connect. The group’s events allow for direct meetings and shared experiences. They are based on the freedom of artistic expression and its presence and appearance in the public sphere. In doing so, c.a.t.a.m.o.n creates space that promotes trust and understanding between individuals, communities and peoples.
