HPAC announces lineup for new season

The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet anchors the dance season, the pride of the Herzliya Performing Arts Center (HPAC) for its 2010-11 performing arts calendar. Santa Fe, making its Israeli debut, is both a classical and contemporary dance company whose list of choreographers embraces such as William Forsythe and Twyla Tharp.

Also on the roster is William Parsons company, which is making a return visit with six pieces from its repertoire, Batsheva Dance with a new work by Ohad Naharin, and the Inbal Pinto Avashalom Pollak company with a collage taken from their own works, including the one they made for Pilobolus in the US.

Mixing dance and music, versatile pianist composer Gil Shohat will present a series, titled “When Music Impels Dance,” that teams up great works of classical music with the dance pieces they have inspired via concerts, lectures, videos and meetings with local artists.

Theater offers the best to come from our repertory theaters, such as Railroad to Damascus from Habima and Scapin from the Khan, while the classical music series offers nine programs played by the Jerusalem, Haifa and Rishon Lezion symphony orchestras featuring local and international conductors and soloists such as our own Noam Sheriff.
