Dream, Dance, Craze is the name of the 10th Marathon Festival at Hateiva, which opened last night and will continue until Saturday night at the performance venue in Jaffa. Hateiva is the home of the Israeli Contemporary Players Ensemble. That is where they rehearse their concert programs, which are performed at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, as well as at Mishkenot Sha’ananim in Jerusalem. In addition, many intriguing contemporary musical events take place in this small hall, which boasts fine acoustics and is equipped with an excellent piano.
Hateiva is a Hebrew for “the box,” yet thinking out of the box is what characterizes both the artistic director of the ensemble Dan Yuhas and Hateiva’s Daniel Sarid.
“In terms of genres, the program of the Marathon Festival includes a bit of everything we present at Hateiva during the season,” explains Sarid. “Music, dance, film, video, poetry and theater, you name it. While the theme is the expression of dream and madness in contemporary electronic, it is also present in classical music and jazz, as well in other art forms.”
Among the participants are The Israeli Contemporary Players; pianists Anat Fort, Yuval Zorn and Ofra Yitzhaki; singers Bracha Kol and Nofar Yakobi; and Yuval Zorn, Eran Zax, Boaz Ben-Moshe, Anat Shamgar, Alona Epstein and Guy Bernstein.For more details and reservations: www.hateiva.com; (03) 682-9473
