 Between 2021 and 2023, there were four
events held in 19 different locations in Jerusalem. These events featured the
works of 74 independent  dance and
performance artists.
The project is the initiative of the
Jerusalem municipality dance department spearheaded by Yael – a home for
independent dance & performance composers in Jerusalem that emerged during
the COVID-19 epidemic and the ensuing social distancing to bring back the
culture of dance and performance to the city’s in public spaces. The series
helped artists to continue working and performing despite the 10/20
restrictions on gatherings in public spaces – up to 10 people in closed areas
and up to 20 people in open spaces. Now that the epidemic is behind us, the
series continues in intimate, alternative sites in Jerusalem, free of charge,
because of its relevance and because it fills a genuine, existing need of the artist and the audience.
