In the 10th year of Jerusalem International Dance Week events, we present the Showcase program and MASH Dance Festival in a festive and exciting format.

As part of the Showcase events, sixteen artists will present dance works to dozens of international directors of dance centers, festivals, and other international programs. Alongside the shows, there will be pitch events, tours, and a presentation of Israeli initiatives for promoting local artists with the aim of encouraging collaborations.

The Jerusalem Dance Showcase is in collaboration with the Cultural Diplomacy Bureau of the Foreign Ministry.


MASH Dance Festival will host the 8th Jerusalem International Choreography Competition, featuring ten unique works by up and coming creators from across the globe, at the end of which monetary prizes and invitations to various platforms abroad will be awarded by an international artistic committee. It will also unveil six Israeli premieres curated and artistically accompanied by the talented Rachel Erdos. 


The new premiere works were selected by an advisory committee including Iris Erez, Rachel Erdos, Ofra Idel, Ruby Edelman, Einav Katan-Schmid, and Matan David. 

The festival events are open to the general public.
