C.R.E.A.T.E ’15

Real Art in Real Places

International residential project with Shahar Dor
27 September – 4 October, 2015
application deadline 1.9 – apply here

7 days of movement exploration, improvisation & performances
at Shahars’ house & art garden, Israel


C.R.E.A.T.E is an intimate intensive project hosting a small group of up to 8 experienced participants who studied with Shahar in the past or with equivalent relevant life-art experience.

The small group, the practice, the program & living at Shahar’s house with his family all creates a special opportunity for the creative, planed and unknown to take place.

Real Art in Real Places, we will explore, create & perform in real places. NO theaters, NO galleries. YES – vanguard spaces, streets, cafes, nature and other real places.

Every morning we will have a 3 hours practice with Shahar, during the afternoons we will explore the spaces & you will have the time to prepare for the evening. Each Evning we will create an improvisational art-act in a unique place around the village. Each one is expected to perform in minimum two evenings. Performances will aim to create a forceful open, site specific, exploitative, vanguard creative art-act.

C.R.E.A.T.E is an a great opportunity to connect to the roots of Shahar’s life-art practice of movement, improvisation and performance, nourishing and empowering oneself as an independent physical explorer; as a person & artist.

C.R.E.A.T.E is a vital and revolutionary dive in to Sahahrs’ somatic art work; an invitation and a call for a nucleolus somatic exploration & image creating, fusing intuitive life skills, arts & practical philosophy, exploiting the evolutionary potential of performance.


We offer two options for your accommodation – build your tent in our garden (free fee) or we can try to connect you with friends or other local hosts around the village.


  • Projects fee: 400 €
  • Tent in the garden – free / Other place – various prices.
  • Food: approx 100 € for shared buying & cooking vegetarian food
“I believe everything is rooted and evolves from THE BIG FOLKLORE TREE - the one that allows all that life, knowledge and creation for the ones who dare look into the volcano. now, all that is left is exploring your roots,as they hold all the life & knowhow you’ll ever need for being the tree that you are.” Shahar Dor

C.R.E.A.T.E follows The Orchard Lab project led by Shahar during 2008-11, hosting more than 25 artists from all over the world for residencies of 6-12 weeks and more inhis house & art garden in Israel.
