My name is Yarit Dor and I work as a movement director, dance choreographer and fight director. From new writing to musical plays, Shakespeare to physical theatre, I create physical storytelling, images and worlds in all forms - dance, fights and movement direction. 

My background - 
I trained in dance theatre in Israel and afterwards at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. Between 2007-2010 I performed as a dancer with Hagit Yakira Dance Company and also worked as the company's dance dramaturge. In 2007-2009 I trained in Jacques Lecoq Physical Theatre at LISPA and in 2009-2010 I was a member of a devised theatre group called "Clowns at Work". In 2010 I directed and choreographed "Chairmania" at the BAC as part of a month long artist residency. Since 2013 I am a certified stage combat teacher with The British Academy of Stage & Screen Combat. As a physical performer I work freelance in motion capture and still perform with various physical theatre ensembles in the UK, Italy and Philadelphia. Currently I am an Associate Tutor at RADA and an Associat Artist with the Director's Cut Theatre Company. I am also currently in the process of opening a new ensemble theatre company called Moving Body Arts. (www.movingbodyarts.com)

Examples of my work on shows-
