The Culture Ministry has awarded Yair Vardi the Arik Einstein Life Achievement Award. Vardi is the long-time CEO of the Suzanne Dellal Dance and Theater Center, which this year is celebrating its 30th anniversary.

“During the last 30 years, Vardi has revolutionized the Israeli Dance world, turning the Suzane Dellal Center into a world-wide famous dance center and promoting the Israeli Dance scene, making it one of the most lively and ground-breaking in the world,” the committee said in its announcement.

“Vardi has redefined the growing Israeli dance scene by promoting local talents – dancers and choreographers – through numerous innovative ventures. His close contacts with other Israeli institutions, such as the Israel Festival, the Carmiel Festival, the Israel Opera and other cultural organizations, made dance available to audiences around the country, both in the center and in the periphery. Vardi has paid a special attention to promoting Israeli dance around the world, creating a network of connections with important dance centers, international dance festivals and many dance companies. Thanks to these connections, artistic directors from around the globe come to Tel Aviv every year to see local talents and bring them to their audiences.His global connections have brought a lot of prestige to Israeli Dance.”


A vast NIS 26 million renovation project at the Suzanne Dellal Center is about to be finished, after which the center will soon be able to offer a large rehearsal studio, new performing halls and an open-air arena.
