Repertory is returning to the Israeli concert stage with The Project, a cooperative venture by the Suzanne Dellal Centre and the Israeli Opera.
“In its 20 years of activity, the Suzanne Dellal Center has caused dance in Israel to take off,” said the selection committee for the 2010 Israel Prize.
“Everyone wants to perform here,” says Yair Vardi, director of the Suzanne Dellal Center. Judging by the roster of world-renowned dance productions descending on Tel Aviv, Vardi’s boast is not an exaggeration.
The Big Stage celebrated not only the Suzanne Dellal Center’s birthday, but also Tel Aviv’s centennial. Accordingly, the festival reflected the city’s artistic treasures.
Chances are, when you think about dance, the word “ugly” doesn’t come to mind. But for the Intimadance festival at Tel Aviv’s Tmuna Theater, choreographers were specifically asked to explore the concept of ugliness.
