Evolving in the field of dance since the 1998s, Ronit Ziv discovers the release technique – a kinesthetic approach to movement and improvisation – causing a shift in her choreographic style. She devotes herself to an exploratory approach of movement and its sources, with the aim to seek the authenticity of the gesture. Her significantly radical approach is based on the transferring between text and choreography, imagining the everyday practice, with the analyses of gesture in the context of a living environment. Ronit established her first place in the Israeli dance world with her first work, Rose Can’t wait, which won first prize in Suzanne Della 1999 Shades in Dance competition, and at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance Choreography Competition. `Rose can’t wait` was invited to perform at the Pina Bausch Festival and.
