Practicing Empathy #3 is the third creation in this series and was initially planned to be developed in collaboration with varying local and international communities. However, the disruption caused by Covid19 became a catalyst for #3 to turn into a full-length solo for Yasmeen Godder, the first in her 25-year career. Godder uses the solo to examine the concept and sensation of empathy and how it relates to her own body and personal experiences. The work travels between a real-time document of the past year’s experience of isolation, limitations and internal discovery, as well as generating continuous mechanisms of survival. Through Godder’s guidance, the solo is an offering to question and feel what role self-empathy can play in our current landscape.
