hakahaLahakah was born in the middle of the night in the ZooMUSEum. It was during the first lockdown. Like most, we were holed up in our houses: unable to become an audience (hakahal) with our physical bodies, we decided to BeCompany (lahakah) in spirit. We invited theater icons David Maayan & Smadar Yaaron to be our teachers. After all, we always seek the counsel of our sages when ceremony becomes necessary for the survival of our art. First, we took the time to simply be together, as artists using a new format and existing in an unfamiliar reality; while our cyborg-like loneliness is both sentient and digitized into something that can be consumed by an entertained audience. And then we realized: We are the company (lahakah), and we are its audience (hakahal)! We are the hakahaLahakah! In this way, at long last, we can be a self-sufficient MUSEum.
Values for this Millennium. We knew it right from the start, just like love at first sight. Together, we dived into a space that was both familiar and ancient, inter-generational and eternal; a space of collaborative artistic research. We investigated the art of the ongoing experience; we insisted on the welfare of our being, we thought about "objective art" and creation of reality, we danced sacred dances, and we talked at length about “the Beginning” and about family. The vision was clear and everything was powerful. No matter what, we will take the form of adance festival.
