The Curtain Up Festival gives independent choreographers the opportunity to present fully produced performances with support in all aspects of production, including lighting and costume design, technical support, public relations, advertising campaigns, and income from ticket sales.


Each year, established local dance artists are appointed to identify new talent to participate in Curtain Up. These mentors guide them through the creation process, culminating in three weeks of performance throughout Israel, at the Suzanne Dellal Centre, and again the following summer as part of Summer Dance.


Curtain Up is supported by the Dance Department of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport and produced by the Israel Festival.

Israel’s leading photographers and artists capture the unforgettable dancers, creators, and moments that have made their mark on the world of Israeli dance over the past two decades. The exhibition includes portraits of dancers in rehearsal and in performance, both elegantly staged as well as candidly caught.


The exhibition concludes with an auction conducted by Simon de Pury, Chairman of Phillips de Pury & Company, one of the world’s largest auction houses, who visits Israel especially for this event.


Photodance is a fun and nostalgic look to the past, and a rare opportunity to take a piece of Israeli dance home with you.



The European Dance Stage 

DanceEuropa (1999-2006) 


DancEuropa, the precursor of Tel Aviv Dance, was an initiative of the Suzanne Dellal Centre and the representatives of the European Union in Israel to expose Israeli audiences to the richness and diversity of contemporary European dance.


DancEuropa was a result of a cultural collaboration between Israel and Europe, serving as an important means to creating bridges, communication and cultural exchanges, a partnership which continues today.


The Delegation of the European Commission, together with the Embassies and Cultural Institutes of the Member States adopted DancEuropa as an EU project as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen cultural ties between Israel and the European Union.


This collaboration continues through the European Dance Stage as part of Tel Aviv Dance.
