Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar create a new experience for their work House, in cooperation with musician Uri Lichtik, video artist Ran Silvan, and their new dance company, L-E-V. Together, the grounds and building of the Hansen Hospital will be transformed into a stage, installation, and performance, which invites the audience to participate in this emotional and intimate experience.
The Hansen Leper Hospital was built in Jerusalem in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Patients were not allowed to leave, and spent their lives in this enclave - their own city behind the walls. The structure, which is located across from the Jerusalem Theatre, is owned by Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael and is one of 110 Jerusalem structures designated for historical preservation. The municipality and Jerusalem Development Authority are currently renovating and restoring the complex, turning it into a hub for design, media, and technology. The performance will take place in the patio, With seating on stage and standing arrangments in the balconies.
Since 2006, Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar have gained a reputation as unique artists, particularly in the dance world.
The L-E-V dance company is considered the pinnacle of their ongoing cooperation.

The Israel Festival is proud to present another world premiere by Rami Be'er and the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company.
The piece deals with voids; certain voids in the human existence, the never ending search for completeness, and our inevitable collision with voids.
The Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company is one of the foremost modern dance companies in the world today. In the 40 years since its establishment, it has gained an excellent reputation in Israel and abroad, and is often invited to represent Israel at international festivals.
Rami Be'er joined the company in 1980 as a dancer and choreographer. In 1996, he was appointed artistic director. His unique pieces have received excellent reviews and international acclaim. Be'er has been the recipient of numerous awards in Israel and abroad, and is regularly invited to choreograph for companies worldwide. Each year he creates a new piece for the Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company.

Dressed to Dance is one part Spanish dancing and one part fashion show. It features over sixty pieces of clothing by Spanish designers, which have been adapted for leading Flamenco dancers.
The show features outfits designed by Picasso and Dali, as well as leading designers from the last century. The show brings to the fore the interesting relationship between artistic design, fashion, and performing arts that began in the previous century and continues today.
This show is more than a fashion show, and tests the limits of traditional Flamenco. The encounter between the dancer, outfit, and the Tower of David Museum's impressive courtyard will cast a different light upon the traditional world, and offer an entirely new interpretation of Spanish dance.
The performance will be accompanied by a live music ensemble, and feature the Flamenco company headed by Sharon Sagi, a Jerusalem-based Flamenco dancer.
Please dress warmly. Seats are unmarked

What is the role of the individual in a world that is greater than any one person? What is the role of women in a world where men make all the decisions? Where does "I" meet the bigger world, the audience, the director? Is "I" really "me" or it is just an amalgamation of everything expected of me?
Anat Grigorio tackles these questions in her debut performance, which combines dance and theatre.

one of Europe's most prominent dance companies will perform its Israeli debut.
Under the artistic directorship of Philippe Cohen, the company recently began focusing on modern dance. It has performed pieces by well-known choreographers such as Saburo Teshigawara, Andonis Foniadakis, and more recently, Israeli choreographer Emanuel Gat.
As part of the Israel Festival, the company will perform two pieces: Glory set to Handel, and Les Noces, set to Stravinsky.
A dance performance by the fascinating choreographer Andonis Foniadakis, performed to music by George Frideric Handel - one of the greatest Baroque composers.
The show is characterized by long, powerful movements performed by breathtaking, virtuosic dancers.
This piece is performed to music composed by Stravinsky for the Russian Ballet, which premiered in Paris on June 13, 1923 - exactly 90 years ago.
Didy Veldman's piece is an expression of stereotypical gender relations. The composition is full of emotions, and incorporates both lightness and stormy dynamics as it oscillates between temptation and powerful, harsh passion.
Reviews "This company of 11 women (and 11 men) does not use pointe shoes. That aspect seemed to emphasize the point: Contemporary met classical, and it was a successful match." [Los Angeles Magazine]
