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.
The program was established with the Lottery Council for Culture and Arts assistance.
