About the method – Animato Dance Art

The Animato Dance Art was developed by the Israeli artist Nadine Bommer- Director and Choreographer of the NADINE Bommer Dance Company. Animato Dance Art uses an improvisational kinetic movement language inspired by the combination of the sea’s endless motion and the surrounding energy. It invites the dancers to see life from a different perspective by connecting with oneself through movement. Bommer created and developed her method to support the enrichment of her creative work; seeking to empower the experience of movement within the creative process. Bommer creates diverse figures and situations which encourage the dancer to find expressive artistic freedom. The creative stage of dance development relies on the totality of kinetic movement with animato characters producing the stunning onstage energy that has become the hallmark of the Nadine Dance Company.
