There has been a lot of talk lately about the restoration of the Israel Festival to its past grandeur.
Thanks to the appointment of new artistic director Itzik Giuli, the local artistic community has experienced a reinvestment in the annual event. And if for no other reason, Giuli should get a good pat on the back for hosting Canadian choreographer Benoit Lachambre’s first performances in Israel.
Lachambre is, in the eyes of many, one of the greatest artists in the dance world. A dancer turned solo artist turned choreographer and avid collaborator, Lachambre is the purveyor of truly unforgettable performances.
