The Israeli artists scheduled to participate include: Niv Sheinfeld & Oren Laor Dance Projects, Yossi Berg & Oded Graf Dance Theatre, Anat Grigorio Dance Projects, Hillel Kogan, Ofir Nahari, Ella Ben-Aharon, Ido Tadmor, Vertigo Dance Company.
“We are thrilled to bring this amazing group of choreographers, dancers and performance artists from Israel to Atlanta,” said Sue Schroeder, artistic director of CORE. “Ever since I saw their work in Israel, I’ve wanted to showcase them to Atlanta audiences and facilitate collaborations with our local arts community. EXPOSED encompasses three U.S. premieres, two regional premieres, one Atlanta premiere, multiple workshops, artist conversations, two collaborations between Israeli and Atlanta artists, and three choreographic commissions. The scope of the festival will reveal the richness, creativity, imagination and strength of contemporary dance and physical theatre now taking place in Israel.”
Ambassador Judith Varnai Shorer, Consul General of Israel to the Southeastern United States, said “I am delighted that Atlantans will have the opportunity to see examples of the thriving contemporary dance and physical theatre being created and performed in Israel. Art is a universal language that connects people through shared experiences and fosters understanding. I hope EXPOSED will continue the strong partnership between Atlanta and Israel’s arts community and arts supporters.”
