Suzanne Dellal Centre 1|2|3
Solo | Duet | Trio
A development program for emerging choreographers
1|2|3 is an annual choreographic development program for emerging Israeli choreographers that supports the creation of new works. The one-year program consists of three phases – Solo, Duet, and Trio. Each phase ends with a performance, and outstanding artists selected by an artistic panel are offered professional opportunities. Ten artists are chosen to begin the program. After each phase, the choreographers are narrowed down until only three remain.
1|2|3 serves as an incubator for the next generation of local creators, supporting the participants in identifying and defining their artistic voice and developing compositional tools and artistic language. The program also opens and strengthens relationships between artists from different disciplines and is a springboard for international connections.
The Centre provides practical, educational, and professional resources while guiding selected artists through their artistic process. Artists will participate in master classes and mentoring sessions with international and local artists and arts professionals from various disciplines.
The first edition of 1|2|3 took place in 2020/21, and the second, 2022/23, started in May 2022 and will continue until March 2023.
The program was established with the Lottery Council for Culture and Arts assistance.
At the end of the Solo Phase, professional opportunities were given to three of the program’s participants that stood out especially:
| Two weeks of residency in THOR Studios Brussels
| Mobility support from the embassy of Israel in Brussels
The Outstanding Performer, Ariel Freedman, was given-
| A subscription for 24 Performances at the Suzanne Dellal Centre during the year.
| One week residency at International Festival “Fuori Programma”, Rome
| Mobility support for choreographer and performer
| 6 months free pass to Pro Mornings classes
