Zaides to perform some ‘Research’

Having just presented his work Quiet at the Theatre National De Chaillot in Paris, Israeli choreographer Arkadi Zaides is back in Israel to perform his latest production Land-Research. In Land-Research, Zeides creates on stage a space of exploration and observation, examining the complex relations between body and land. Against panoramic photos of broken scenery, five solo performers from different backgrounds go through individual processes of transformation.

Naharin to receive degree from Juilliard

The Juilliard School is to award Ohad Naharin with an honorary doctoral degree in May, 2013, for his “artistry and humanity,” which according to the famous school have enriched “Juilliard and the world.”

Naharin has previously been awarded honorary doctorates from the Weizmann Institute and the Hebrew University, and was also made a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Government.

The Kaiser is coming – in a new exhibit

Kaiser Wilhelm II and his wife, empress Augusta Victoria, made a historic trip to Jerusalem as the focal point of their travels to the Holy Land in 1898 between October 29 and November 4. Their visit received unprecedented coverage.

Local press reported on the journey, and foreign newspapers devoted caricatures to the trip. An exhibition at the Tower of David Museum in Jerusalem focuses on the royal visit, showing original newspapers, photographs and a series of huge projected images and typical cameras of the era. The exhibit runs until March. For more info visit www.towerofdavid.org.il
