Tamar Zehava Tabori is an emerging dance and video artist, currently residing on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples; the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. She is interested in the documentation of dance, having done archival work for organizations such as Kaeja d’Dance, and at present holds the position of Youth Curator for F-O-R-M (Festival of Recorded Movement). She has been involved in various interdisciplinary dance productions across Canada, performing on stage and on screen, and has received commissions for both production and instruction roles. She has interpreted works for Petrikor Danse, The Chimera Project Lab, Future Leisure, SatisFACTORY Dance, as well as various independent choreographers nationally and internationally. Her experimental short films have been screened at festivals such as F-O-R-M, Antimatter, Cinematica, NorthWest Film Forum’s Local Sightings, Cadence Video Poetry Festival, Art Volt, and Moving Images ScreenDance Festival. As an artist, she seeks to intrigue and engage, exploring the tension between the ephemeral dancing body and the ostensible permanence of digital landscapes.
