Dancing in the new decade Choreographer Noa Dar has been awarded the Culture Minister's Prize for her contribution to Israeli Dance. The ceremony will be January 17 at the Suzanne Dellal Dance Center (SD) in Tel Aviv. On January 23, also at SD, Dar's company will present her newest work, We, which premiered at last year's Curtain Up. Elsewhere, on January 14, Ohad Naharin unveils Project 5. The male version of the same piece that premiered in '08, it features four dance pieces and a video. Meanwhile, the Tmuna Theater presents two solo works by Yair Vardi that explore the relationship between audience and stage. Vardi, who defines himself as a performer, lighting designer, curator and theater-maker, is the founding curator of the Tmuna Theater's A-Genre Festival, which began in 2005. He'llperform the two pieces, Hey Britney and I, Too, am Yair Vardi, on January 7. Semel and Mich-Sheriff 'Fly' away Author Nava Semel and composer Ella Mich-Sheriff have teamed up again. The result is the chamber opera To Fly from Here that premieres at the Cameri Theater in Tel Aviv on January 7. To Fly from Here tells the story of little Hadara and the mysterious Monsieur Maurice. She's an orphan; he's a Holocaust survivor from an island off the coast of Tunisia whose residents hold the secret of flying - a secret that he may be able to teach her. They meet in a moshav during the early years of the State of Israel. Yael Ronen directs and the Beersheba Sinfonietta is conducted by Doron Solomon. Semel and Milch's first collaboration was The Rat Laughs, based on the wrenching book by Semel about a rat, a compassionate priest and a little girl whose strange story becomes a cyber-legend. The opera has gained international renown.
