What is on the bill for Curtain Up this year? To find out, here’s a video preview of works by 10 up-and-coming Israeli choreographers.
The festival, a five-day event including performances, video presentations, and community classes, profiles nine of Israel’s up-and-coming dance groups.
In June, a wave of contemporary dance from Israel is coming to New York as part of the annual La MaMa Moves Festival – and at the end of January, a gala evening offers a preview.
With four established choreographers as artistic directors, a wealth of premieres by emerging creators, and a series of discussions, Curtain Up 2010 is an event to watch.
“Five days later, we leave [International Exposure” with a semblance of an idea of what makes contemporary dance in Israel so vibrant,” says guest writer Brian Schaefer.
