Jerusalem dance troupe showcases solo creations at upcoming festival

It’s all about the individual at the Jerusalem International Solo Dance Festival, taking place September 6-8 at the Hansen House in Jerusalem.

Created and organized by the local Angela Dance Company, the event celebrates performance art and craftsmanship.

The festival highlights dance as an act of storytelling that emphasizes the narrative of the individual, said choreographer Miriam Engel, who founded and directs Angela Dance Company and the accompanying festival.

Choreographers from Israel and around the world will perform works at the event, give master classes and hold discussions open to the public.

There is also a residency program for artists from Jerusalem and international guests. Participating artists will stay in Jerusalem, working and creating while drawing inspiration from the city, Engel said.

It echoes Engel’s own work in Angela, which produces original contemporary dance work from the company’s headquarters in Jerusalem’s Katamon neighborhood, connecting with the local community and working with young artists from the region.
