After the kids went off to bed, those in the mood to party arrived for “After Sunset” and a host of impressive world-class performances in the outdoor theater square. These included a premiere of “Babel” by Dance Company, Kolben Dance; Pyromania’s first performance in "Cease fire" and "The bench" by Inbal Pinto and Avshalom Pollak.

over the course of the festival included the
play "Miracles and Wonders" (an adaptation of Leah Goldberg's work),
"The Beatles" from the Kibbutz Theater, and "The Jungle Book". An
electric vibe was created with the musical quintet Mother Theresa
appearing with a performance of Dr. Seuss, along with break-dancers, a
rhythmic quartet, mime and splendid satirical street theater.
