Right when the temperatures on Israel's coastal plain begin to rise is the perfect time for heading up to the capital, breathing in the fresh mountain air, and enjoying the plentitude of performances offered by the 58th annual Israel Festival. This year's multidisciplinary menu offers an abundance of attractive options in theater, music, dance, performance and video art from Israel and around the world.
In the past few years the Israel Festival, currently celebrating its 58th year, has morphed into a focal point for art and culture under the guidance of CEO Eyal Sher and artistic director Itzik Giuli. This year as well, the festival is offering a multidisciplinary artistic line designed to enrich the cultural landscape with diversified and piercing productions in the fields of theater, music, dance, performance and video art offered by artists from Israel and around the world. In addition to appearances in conventional performance spaces, an effort has been made to host events in lesser known, under-the-radar locations including the Nature Museum, the Islamic Art Museum and the Tower of David Museum. Audiences can take an active part in some of the events.
