The Kelim Choreography Center was established based on a dialogue amongst choreographers and aims to broaden this dialogue through exchanges with artists and thinkers beyond our community.Kelim promotes discussion and collaboration between dance artists and theoreticians from Israel and abroad with the goal of sharing and expanding the content and growth at Kelim and in the surrounding community.
Through International Collaborations, Kelim is able to host workshops led by leading dance artists and theoreticians from abroad. Kelim has hosted artists such as Meg Stuart, Mårten Spångberg, Phillip Gehmacher (in collaboration with Arkadi Zaides’ Moves Without Borders), Doris Uhlich, Anita Kaya, and Simon Mayer.
In 2015, Kelim initiated its first organizational collaboration with Im_flieger (Vienna), an – initiative for dance, performance and transmedia art work.Kelim’s project with Im_flieger, Changing Spaces international, included artist exchanges and performances in Tel Aviv and Vienna. The project continues with an annual exchange of one participant of Kelim’s choreography program hosted in Vienna and an artist from Im_flieger hosted at Kelim.
