Imagery in Motion

Imagery in Motion (I.M) is a choreography and performance practice based on imagery. It aims to bridge between the worlds of imagination and physics. Using tasks that are fantasy based, the method challenges the movement possibilities of the human form. The fantasies, built over years of practice, replace standard dance terms with images which the dancer experiences, and later on the viewer. Moving in this way sends them both into the unknown realms of the subconscious, in an almost meditative dance state, creating entirely new ways of moving as well as new pathways of feeling.

Since 2013 Oded has taught this method at the Vertigo Dance Company Workshop, Jerusalem Ballet, KCDC training program, Jerusalem Dance Academy (Israel); Sydney Dance Company PPY, Queensland University of Technology, STRUT Dance, Ausdance QLD, Stephanie Lake Company, Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (Australia); Urbanity Dance Company (USA); Aurinko Baletti (Finland); Dolgushin Classical Ballet School (Russia); Trinity Laban, The Rambert School of Ballet & Contemporary Dance and The Northern School of Contemporary Dance (UK); HfMDK and Plauen Zwickau Ballet (Germany); Egomio Cultural Centre (Cyprus); University of Malta; Estancias Coreograficas (Spain), University of Ghana.

Through Imagery in Motion (I.M) Oded is committed to sharing these tools with dancers and non-dancers alike, at any level or age. Through workshops, people are guided on how to connect their bodies to imagery through the precision of intention. Impacting the community through both performance and quality community education is central to Oded’s mission.
