Featured Artist: Root Yarden

Synkroniciti is excited to welcome back Israeli dancer/choreographer, filmmaker, photographer and poet Root Yarden, our final Featured Artist of “Flow.” We feature a beautiful, short video called “Pro-missed Land,” a moment of dancing in the wind which memorializes those places to which we can never return, views altered by human development and the passage of time. It is an expressive and cathartic gesture.

See Root’s evocative video in the new issue of Synkroniciti, “Flow.” Please subscribe or purchase the issue here:  https://synkroniciti.com/the-magazine/.
