Israel Festival 2019 – exploring boundaries of artistic creation E-mail

Founded in 1961, the Israel Festival presents outstanding international theatre performances, contemporary dance and classical music, along with original Israeli works and open-to-the-public street performances.

Attended by well over 35,000 people, the Festival is one of Jerusalem’s most important and beloved cultural assets. This year’s presentations will take place from 30 May to 15 June. The artistic programme for 2019 reflects on current issues and expressions of identity, while exploring the boundaries of artistic creation and the separation of “artist” and “viewer”, “self” and “the other”.

Performances will be held at the Jerusalem Theater, the Tower of David, the Museum for Islamic Art, a City Hall rooftop, the Eden Tamir Music Center in Ein Kerem and Zik Studio in Beit Nekofa, creating an inclusive, unique and inspiring artistic landscape for both performers and audiences.

This year’s international programme includes works by Jefta Van Dinther, Deborah Hay, Philippe Quesne, Steven Cohen, Martin Zimmermann, Robyn Orlin, Marcelo Evelin, the Cullbergbaletten, and the Song of Goat theatre group.
