“If I Were You – Project Israel” in full effect!

With the help of the Office of Public Affairs at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, and the ongoing support of the Fulbright Program, “If I Were You – Project Israel” is off to a great start. Yesterday, Artistic Director Casey Lee Thorne engaged an Arab/Jewish group in the Arab village Bi’ine in Galilee in an improvisational performance with the playback theater group¬†Shiluvim BaGalil. Next week she will conduct a workshop at the Western Galilee College and collect the first batch of completed Connected Cards associated with this iteration of “If I Were You.” To support this project please visit http://dancersgroup.org/donate/¬†and select Inside Out Contemporary Ballet from the drop down menu.
