The 13th Israel Theater Prize (ITP) ceremony will take place April 4 at the Gesher Theater in Jaffa. Final nominations in 18 categories, including choreography and/or movement, will only be announced mid-February, but the theaters have sent their wish lists to the 120 academicians who have been going to the shows all year. Their impartially monitored and anonymous choices will determine the four or five finalists for each category.
Though in previous years specific theaters have dominated the ITPs, this will no longer be the case. Rising costs and decreased funding have invited a number of coproductions, such as Black Rain - that unites the virtually defunct Haifa Theater and the Herzliya Ensemble - and Hebron - which brought together the Cameri and Habimah.
