On the stage is a group of women whose years are sketched upon their bodies. Most of them used to dance as girls, and as they matured they were required, by their parents, to stop. These women returned to dance at their adult age as opposed to the common conception that sanctifies the younger body in general and the dancer's body in particular. "GO" is a manifesto to this body.

In this performance, moving side by side is a pilot, a ballerina, and an elderly female body. From the relationship which is built and unfolded between the images and the physical body, questions arise about presence, free will, coercion, and domination.

"GO" seeks to expand the discussion beyond the particular body to our existence as individuals and as a society.

The creation of "GO" marks a decade of work for the choreographer with the adult body.

As part of the social artistic agenda, Galit chooses to create with older women who are "non dancers". She acts to promote the idea of ​​living in a society that enables development and self-fulfillment in an adult body, a society in which "the world belongs to all and not just the young".

In the year of 2009, Galit initiated the "Gila Workshop - Movement and Performance Art for Mature Women”, in which she studies the essence of growing up and growing old through movement and body. In addition, she works to create an artistic space for elderly women.
