Earth Odyssey - Asaf Avidan

Music & Dance

This video was made by dancers from different continents filming themselves in their confinement with their personal phones and computers.

It was made in the first week of April 2020 while almost 2 billion people around the globe were unable to move freely due to the restrictions imposed in attempt to prevent the spread of the Corona Virus.

"I found so much beauty in the need of people to keep on playing music from their balconies or dance together through virtual meeting applications… To simultaneously succumb to and transcend earthly limitations by artistic endeavours.

These are stressful times, and maybe it helps to remember that we are all a part of a mutual story.
An experience of searching for meaning and control in this storm of a life.
We all go through this one way or another.
And in that… We are not alone
This is our Odyssey." (Asaf Avidan)
