Tmuna, the experimental Tel Aviv fringe theater company, is celebrating a year of its festivals with a medley of events at the Tmuna Festival from October 16 – 25. On October 26 & 27, the theater hosts the Montefiore Music Festival that will showcase the latest in avant-garde music.

As well as pieces from A-Genre and IntimaDance, there are three dance premieres and a piece from Berlin. The Berlin offering is a dialogue between live performers and digital art. It’s called A Provocation Pure and Simple and is by expat Anat Eisenberg and her company.

The premieres are Plan B by Michal Herman, a quirky dance piece for “beginner” audiences.

The audience is also part of the action in Moran Aviv’s Contour Lines – Hosting Arena.

Hagai Linik offers Galloping, a here and now meditation on imagination.

The 11 shows also include The Bible Teacher, a new play by Prof. Yossi Yzraely that tackles the subject of pedophilic urges.

The Montefiore Festival showcases music in and on the historic neighborhood with events at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on both days. In addition, there will be music at the Tmuna bar from 10 p.m. nightly during the festival with such entertainers as Dikla and Dana Vishinsky.

Tickets for the festival are NIS 30; for the bar events, from NIS 50. The budget for the festival, which comes from the Tel Aviv Municipality, is a very modest NIS 80,000.
