Dance in the Exhibition

Tuesdays, 21:00, November-December 2018

For the fourth year, the Israel Museum hosts a new series of dance performances in intimate museum spaces; creating unique encounters between dancer and art in the gallery. The Museum has hosted a number of Israeli dance encounters over recent years, where each dancer brings fresh perspective to the museum experience, whether in a work created specifically for the Museum space, or a legacy work that has been adapted to resonate in the gallery. In this year's dance series, the Museum draws on the connections between dance and art presented in the museum.
Each of the artists chosen to take part in this unique framework offers a new interpretation from his, or her own repertoire. In contrast to the traditional stage, the encounter of dance in a museum space creates an intimate and direct connection between the audience and the performing artists. The space; together with the works imbues the dance with new meaning, which in turn creates further dimensions. Dance in the Exhibition becomes a unique dialogue between the creator of dance and dancers; visual art and the audience.

Artistic director of the series: Neta Cohen
