We invite you to listen to Creatures of Dance, a podcast on contemporary dance in Israel with Yali Nativ and Iris Lana.

 

The field of contemporary dance in Israel is complex and unusual in scope, saturated with references to local cultural, social and political contexts and with deep affinities to the international dance arena. The podcast offers an informed and enjoyable discourse about dance in Israel for a wide audience, researchers and students. Some episodes are produced in the recording studio, some in homes and dance studios, and others live, as a performative form, in the presence of an audience.
