May flowers are not all that has sprung this spring in Israel. The cultural scene has been spreading like wildflowers across the country, inviting visitors to explore unknown territories – from unfamiliar ballroom dance styles in Batsheva Company's newest work, Venezuela, to an 'Open House' festival encouraging locals and tourists alike to unveil and understand the values of well-designed architecture.
The annual Musrara Mix Festival is no exception, as they continue the trend with their 'Terra Incognita' themed event, where artists and audience-members are invited to delve into unexplored territories from East to West, as they seek clarity in hybrid worlds.
The international multidisciplinary event, produced by the Naggar Multidisciplinary School of Art and Society, invites the public to "experience the [Musrara] neighborhood, explore its streets, be a guest in the backyards, meet the residents and enjoy some of the best multidisciplinary [arts] made in Israel and the world today."
As always, this year's festival aims to embody the political and cultural essence of Jerusalem and further with unique concerts, workshops, public art exhibitions, and more. Let the psychedelic grooves of Crunch 22 send you into a trance, allow Aleksandra Wilcyznska's fabric-based "Metamorphosis" to transform you, or take a musical trip from East to West Africa with Tigris' addictive Afrodelic melodies. The world is yours to explore, and from June 6-8, Musrara Mix is here to help guide the way.
