1|2|3 is an annual choreographic development program for emerging Israeli choreographers that supports the creation of new works. The one-year program consists of three phases – Solo, Duet, and Trio. Each phase ends with a performance, and outstanding artists selected by an artistic panel are offered professional opportunities. Ten artists are chosen to begin the program. After each phase, the choreographers are narrowed down until only three remain.
1|2|3 serves as an incubator for the next generation of local creators, supporting the participants in identifying and defining their artistic voice and developing compositional tools and artistic language. The program also opens and strengthens relationships between artists from different disciplines and is a springboard for international connections.
The Centre provides practical, educational, and professional resources while guiding selected artists through their artistic process. Artists will participate in master classes and mentoring sessions with international and local artists and arts professionals from various disciplines.
The first edition of 1|2|3 took place in 2020/21, and the second, 2022/23, started in May 2022 and will continue until March 2023.
The program was established with the Lottery Council for Culture and Arts assistance.

Be steadfast like the mountains and don’t leave
Don’t leave unless you’re standing like a knight in battle
Do not surrender your body to the enemies; we are not victims; we just vary our ways to fight for freedom.
Hold your pain between your torn ribs and walk slowly towards the sun, but keep on going.
Be patient like an olive tree at home; then beat the horizon with your wings and click your heels onto the ground, and rise.
كوني صامِدة كالجِبال.
كوني صامِدة كالجِبال ولا تُغادري.
كوني صامِدة كالجِبال ولا تُغادري إلا وانتِ واقفه كفارسة في المعركة.
لا تُسلمي الأعداء جسدكِ فنحنا لسنا ضحايا، نحنا فقط نتفنّن في مقارعة الحُرية.
أحبسي اوجاعك بين ضلوعك المتمزقة وامضي ولو ببطئ نحو ألشمس, لكن امضي صعوداً.
تصبري كزيتونة الدار ثُم أضربي جناحيكِ مع الأُفق وأضربي بكعبكِ ايقاعاً في الأرض ثُم انهضي.
