Dance: The others at the Between Heaven and Earth Festival

There are seemingly a lot of contradictions in the Jerusalembased organization Between Heaven and Earth, which gives voice to religious contemporary dance makers and artists.

This weekend, the annual Between Heaven and Earth Festival will commence in various venues around the capital, bringing the works of 15 artists to Jerusalem’s stages. Founded and directed by choreographer Ronen Itzhaki, Between Heaven and Earth embraces the tension of straddling incongruous aspirations. As is written on the organization’s website, “A Jewish modern dance festival is so strange that it doesn’t even fit into one of your cultural categories.”
