January means it’s time for another convening of APAP (Association of Performing Arts Presenters), with presenters converging on New York City, seeing scores of performances, and mingling with artists.
Here in Israel, there’s a similar festival: International Exposure. From January 20-25, presenters from around the globe will convene in Tel Aviv at the Suzanne Dellal Center. They will view dance created in Israel, connect with choreographers, and perhaps lay the groundwork for bringing Israeli work abroad. This year’s festival is packed with 20 concerts - many of them mixed bills - as well as several receptions, a lecture by dance scholar Gaby Aldor, and a tour of Jerusalem.
Last year I went to a few International Exposure performances, but this year I’ll be attending the entire festival and writing about it. Hopefully I’ll post a recap here on The Winger, and I’ll be putting up at least one post per day on Dance In Israel, so stay tuned!
Time to rest up before the dance overload . . .
