The Eshkol-Wachmann Movement Notation Center The EWMN Center is situated in Noa Eshkol's historic home in Holon, Israel. The EWMN Center is the base of the Noa Eshkol Foundation for Movement Notation and houses the extensive archive of Noa Eshkol and her work, movement workshops, performances, lectures, consultation and assistance in EWMN, exhibitions and special projects.
Eshkol-Wachman Movement Notationis a thinking tool that can teach people the art of observation, i.e. encourage them to aspire for the ultimate level of seeing. It does so by organizing the 'material' known as movements of the human body in relatively simple categories, thereby allowing us an insight (in-sight) into the complexity of this phenomenon as a whole."
