The seventh DancEuropa Festival gets underway at the Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center (TAPAC) and at Suzanne Dellal (SD) from October 7 through November 4. Four of the five European dance companies are making their Israeli debut, proving Suzanne Dellal general manager Yair Vardi's happy contention that international companies are clamoring to come. The Prague National Theater Ballet (SD, Oct.7, 8) presents Jiri Kylian's "Arms of the Sea" with "Maria's Dream" by PNTB artistic director Petr Zuska who has incorporated contemporary dance into the company's classical repertoire. Then there's Chris Haring's innovative company from Austria with his multimedia "Foreign Body". Another debut is Ed Wubbe's Scapino Ballet. The veteran contemporary company from Rotterdam is coming with two programs, both by Wubbe. The first is the new "Paramount" about emigrants far from home (TAPAC. Oct. 10,11), and "Sister Fury," "Single Maneuvers," "All Souls" (SD. Oct. 23,24). The Mannheim National Theater Ballet (Germany) has two artistic directors, both acclaimed former dancers, and each presents a work. There's Kevin O'Day's "Brandenburg Concerto" and Dominique Dumais' "Broken Verse" (SD. Nov. 3,4). The only returnee is France's Ballet Preljocaj that has delighted local audiences more than once in the past. It's also coming with two programs, the full length "Four Seasons" to Vivaldi's famous suite (TAPAC. Oct. 27,28) and "Annunciation," "Empty Moves," and "Hyphen," all four dances by the company's founding artistic director, Angelin Preljocaj (SD. Oct. 31, Nov. 1). The Festival is a collaboration among the Suzanne Dellal Center, TAPAC and the Israel Opera.
