Talia Paz originates from the deep roots of Israel. Water, Sun and
A poem in movement, which expresses itself through its sheer existence.
Talia IS the passion to move and the memory of all that is in her
heritage. The salty water, the scorching sun.
This base is essential in expressing these vital forces, the primitive
instinct of perception.
When one is thirsty: one drinks,
When one is creative: one moves.
Space strewn with the heat and humidity of a body.
The inner force to part from - share a memory- a souvenir.
An artist rich of temperament, excellent on the technical level, which
puts herself to the test in a beautiful chorographical passage by
Carolyn Carlson (scenography by De Luigi).
"La parola dell'acqua", (to delightful music by McKennitt),
seem to resound with contagious Dionysian joy.
Through the "Carlsonian writing", Paz creates, at last the
image of the contemporary woman. Conscious of her self and the world.
Of her body: a plant destined to bloom.
Conscious even in the Israeli desert where the woman - as Moni Ovadia
tells - is mother and queen of suffering. However, strong and warm
like the sun on the sand.
And if it is the desert of the soul, the song of water shall urge
it on its existential voyage. Because the woman - with infinite symbology
- is water that flows and dances.
A successful and involving experience, which serves as an insight
to Talia Paz's talent and harmony
Water talk involves choreography, which Talia participated in the
Biennale Di Venezia in 1999.
Talia is a goddess coming out sinuously from the water, frightened
by the world she sees around her but at the same time fascinated
when she becomes involved in it, a universe of which she will never
take part in because her destiny will be to return to the water..."
