This year the March Hare Dance Festival is celebrating collaboration and cooperation in the art of dance. Fruitful dialogue and the joy of forging meaningful connections are at the heart of the festival - embodied in the pieces created collaboratively by artist and choreographers, in the choice of public urban spaces as performance venues, and in the various events and workshops open to the public.

The festival’s potential is in bringing people together and the resulting meeting points, manifested in artistic creation. These meeting points don’t belong to any of us, but come to life between us; between creators of a piece, between the audience and the artists, between the theater and public urban spaces, between exterior and interior, between two pieces presented one after another. What possibilities are discovered through these relations? What occurs when sincere dialogue and a shared presence take place? What kind of alchemy transpires through the meeting of people and art?

We invite you to experience the festival through the lens of movement in its various forms: the performer’s movement, the progress of the audience from one place to another, and the flow of thoughts and sensations within you while watching a piece. We welcome everyone, near and far, to join us, both those familiar with the world of dance as well as those yet to experience it.

This year, in line with the matriarchal spirit of the Kelim Center for Choreography, creator May Zarhy joined Anat Danieli in the artistic direction of the festival.

The March Hare Dance Festival will be held at two venues in the city of Bat-Yam; at the Kelim Center for Choreography and at the Ben Gurion school.

Over the course of two subsequent weekends, five new pieces developed at the Kelim Center for Choreography residency program will be presented, as well as works by artists from around the world.

You are all invited!
