The Hot Dance Festival is well under way. At this point in the summer, major contemporary companies, flamenco phenomena, Irish legends and independent artists have given performances. This year, the festival’s program will come to a close with Other Dance, a small festival within the larger happening. Other Dance is a forum that provides young and emerging choreographers a stage on which they can show their work.

With the financial and administrative difficulties associated with producing dance, these artists, most of whom are at the beginning of their careers, have few opportunities throughout the year to present their work. This year, the festival will host 24 such choreographers. Some of the artists are veterans of fringe events such as Other Dance, Intimadance and Mahol Shalem, for others, this will be their first big break. The works include live performance, dance films, visual art and song. All of the performances will take place in the intimate environs of the Yaron Yerushalmi Theater at the Suzanne Dellal Center.

Other Dance will occur from August 23- 27. For more information, visit www.suzannedellal.org.il.
