With a rich calendar of performances through June 18, the 2011 Israel Festival is set to lure concert-goers from around the country to Jerusalem. Here’s a peek at this year’s dance events.
International Exposure 2010 will run from Wednesday, December 8 through Sunday, December 12, and the schedule features an enticing array of established companies and independent choreographers.
Speaking with choreographer Nimrod Freed in 2008 gave me a much clearer sense of the institutional map of Israeli contemporary dance.
International Exposure 2009 will present the work of twenty-seven Israeli choreographers to over ninety guests including theater directors, festival directors, and journalists.
“I am interested more in what is under the words, what is under our life. I’m more interested in energy, in what people don’t say. And I’m trying to dance it,” says Nimrod Freed.
