International Exposure is a professional event open to registered guests only. Please Login to reserve your place.
Throughout history, dance in the West has operated as transnational and mobile, sustaining an economy of exchange, sharing and mutual influences. Respectively, dance in Israel developed on a strong basis of infrastructure of overseas ties, immigration and the importation of ideas and practices – mainly from Europe and the USA.
In an open series of live conversations, we will explore the following issues: the position of Israeli contemporary dance in the international field; what do choreographers think about the nature and significance of the ties existing between them and their colleagues abroad; and what is the role of art institutions and the State in the development of such relations.
With: Israeli choreographers participating in this year’s Exposure, visiting international curators, artistic directors of Suzanne Dellal Centre and representatives of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
