Along with Mediterranean fare, jazz and security firms, contemporary dance has become one of Israel’s major cultural exports. The 92Y’s Out of Israel festival, now in its eighth season, celebrates Israel’s 70th anniversary with a look at the “palatable intensity and adventurous physicality of these vigorous [Israeli] voices,” says The Times. Guest curated by Israeli-American choreographer Dana Katz, leader of Danaka Dance Collective, the two-day program includes a work by acclaimed Israeli choreographers Itzik Galili and Roi Assaf, performed by Israeli-American dancer Troy Ogilvie; a short solo by dance artist Roni Chadash; a new composition by the Danaka Collective and films by Joseph Bach and Shamel Pitts.
Two show dates/times: Friday, Jan. 12, 12 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 13, 8 p.m.
$10 in advance / $20 at the door.
