As part of The Republic of Turkey's 85th anniversary, The Suzanne Dellal Center hosts two of the country's artistic ambassadors: The Istanbul Ballet and the Cidgem Company. Both represent one of their homeland's finest cultural achievements - choreography. Thursday night brings us two performances, Istanbul Ballet on the main stage and Cidgem Company in the Yaron Yerushalmi Theater. The former performs Rose Garden (choreographed by the company's director, Bihan Marpi), which combines Turkish art, dance and music. An original score ranges from classical Byzantine to modern electronic tracks, which accompanies Marpi's exquisite dancers as they journey through time. The latter presents Happy Day, a creation for three performers. As the name implies, this piece is about those rare days where the sun shines on everyone. Directed by Cigdem Inan, choreographed by Barek Saribai and music from Jakse Ozokoskon - Happy Day speaks of dreams, desires and aspirations of everyday life. Rose Garden: Jan. 8 at 9:30 p.m. and Jan. 9 at 2 p.m., NIS 110. Happy Day: Jan. 8 at 8 p.m. and Jan. 9 at noon, NIS 70. For tickets and more information, (03) 510-5656.
