Liat’s work is characterized as warm, dynamic and slightly absurd. Via movement, the Israeli choreographer Liat Waysbort opens up a pallet of feelings and meanings. Always powerful, never sentimental, her atmospheric performances pull the spectator in.
Liat Waysbort (Israel 1974) began her dance career in Tel-Aviv, where she has been dancing with the Bat-Sheva Dance Company for nine years. Liat completed her studies in the Netherlands, at the master choreography program of Codarts (Rotterdam), graduating in 2006.
Waysbort had started her creative work in Dansateliers in 2005, and continued with her very successful choreographic trajectories in Dansateliers since then. In 2006 Liat created ‘Memory happens now’, and in 2008 the work ‘Redreaming’ was choreographed. In 2009 ‘Reality is shaped by recalling’ had its premiere as the first full evening program of Dansateliers.
In that period Liat also created various works for companies such as Conny Janssen Danst, Dansgroep Amsterdam and The Meekers which was received with favorable reviews and participated in national and international festivals such as Sprindance Utrecht, Recontres Choreographique Paris, Interplay Torino and more.
Beside her work as a choreographer Liat is also teaching intensively in the Amsterdam School for the Arts and giving workshops for professionals in the Netherlands and Europe.
