About - Diver Festival 24

Diver Festival: Contemporary Dance in Tel Aviv-Jaffa is an annual international festival and a leading agent in the current ‘new wave’ of dance in Israel. It calls for post-disciplinary context, artistic courage, collaborative projects, and radical engagement in the field. Diver exposes and enhances the local and vibrant art scene, and simultaneously takes part in an international network of artists and institutions with mutual interest. The festival is known for its independence as it’s not exclusively officially associated with any major institution in the Israeli dance and art scene, but at the same time, it collaborates with most of them and with major visual art partners and prominent cultural venues.

Diver is taking place all over Tel Aviv-Jaffa in different venues, theaters, museums, and performance spaces. The content performed is introducing young and experienced leading choreographers and artists from Israel and abroad. Next to the shows, Diver invites and initiates diverse collaborations, formats, and platforms. Diver wishes to develop an embodied discursive sphere, which is conceptualizing the present, while investigating the past and performing a futuristic prophetic gesture.
