Duets – Phase 2 of 1 | 2 | 3
1 | 2 | 3 is a new annual program for the next generation of choreographers. The 9-month program consists of three stages: solo, duet, trio (1 | 2 | 3). Ten artists have been selected to begin the program and after each stage, the number of choreographers will decrease until there are three left.
The ten selected artists are: Inbar Buchbinder, Shachar Hanin, Noam Fruchtlander Caspi, Nur Grabley, Tamir Golan, Nia Bingi Bonstein, Dana Sapir, Shani Bar Dimri, Ron Cohen, Lalel Filiora.
As part of the program for choreographers, there is a parallel program for developing new lighting designers for dance who have embarked on a joint creative journey together with the choreographers. The program includes professional guidance and workshops alongside a joint creative process with the choreographers presenting in the program.
Each phase ends with a performance and professional opportunities for outstanding artists, selected by a panel of judges.
The program was established with the support of the Lottery Council for Culture and the Arts.
After the premiere of the ten solos on July 1, five choreographers were chosen to continue to the duet phase: Inbar Buchbinder, Nia Bingi Bonstein, Tamir Golan, Ron Cohen, and Dana Sapir.
Four lighting designers continue their work in lighting design: Omer Bolognese Cohen, Yair Salman, Vika Kaganovskaya, and Netanel Kafka.
Ron Cohen was selected as the Outstanding Creator from the solos and Miso Samara was selected as Outstanding Performer.
At the end of the duet phase an outstanding choreographer will be invited to teach and develop their duet with the dancers of the Ensemble of the Conservatoire national Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. An outstanding performer will receive a scholarship for attendance and accommodations to the Movementors workhops at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance. Three choreographers will be selected to continue to the Trio phase of the program which will premiere in December 2021.
The premiere of the Duets will take place on Saturday 25/09/21 at 17:00, 19:00, 21:00 in the Zehava Studio of Suzanne Dellal Centre.
