The process of conducting free dance workshops and collecting Connected Cards has begun! Almost one hundred reflections on what dancing connects us to have been gathered to date in support of the Israel iteration of If I Were You. Here is a photo of some young dancers from the Tel Aviv Dance Academy deep in thought after a workshop taught by Casey Lee Thorne.
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. Connected Cards in both Arabic and Hebrew are being used for this iteration of If I Were You.
