This is the 29th year Room Dances Festival has been held in Jerusalem and in Tel Aviv. The festival wishes to create an intimate experience of movement, centering on solo dancers or small ensembles performing in venues where no partition exists between stage and viewer. The dances all aim to give precedence to the dancer-creator, while examining new forms of creation and dance-language which emphasizes the intimacy between dancers and viewers.
“The unique Room Dances Festival returns with displays of flexibility, elegance and coordination – in short, a celebration of the human body's movement.” (Ruth Eshel, “Haaretz”)
