Israel Festival 2022 - The Israel Festival

Israel Festival 2022

Change. In the end, that’s what it’s all about. 
A small change, or a dramatic one. One that is aesthetic, or essential. A tangible change, or a change in thinking. Change – or at the very least, a step towards it – that’s what we are seeking. We want things to seep in, drop by drop, in their own time. We want for things to move slowly through the corridors of our consciousness and through the maze of our perceptions and preconceptions.
This year’s festival includes fifteen works made of water and spirit. Fifteen works from Israel and around the world that have been meticulously hand-picked and developed. A mixture of spectacular, large-scale cultural happenings and personal, intimate performances. Almost all the works occur in one place – the Jerusalem Theater: on its stages, beside them, above them, underneath them. A splendid spectrum of artists gathering for a precise, singular moment in time invite us to connect, to lean in, to let go. Their works strive to crack conventions, and plant seeds of change. In the end, that’s what it’s all about.
