Vertigo Dance: Art. Human. Nature.

Rising from the fear and desolation of pandemic stricken Jerusalem streets, Vertigo Dance Company shares its inspiring performance "Birth of the Phoenix" as a symbol of hope for the coming new year.

Join us for this film that will be featured at the Vertigo Dance Festival (December 27–31) and learn more about the unique home, performance and teaching space they have created at Vertigo’s Eco Art Village.

The program will include a conversation between Vertigo’s Artistic Director and Co-Founder, Noa Wertheim and Joan Finkelstein, Executive Director for the Harkness Foundation for Dance in New York. Vertigo is recognized as a world renowned dance troupe, that performs in unconventional settings and removes boundaries for both performers and audiences alike.

Highlighted within every performance one can see Vertigo’s values showcased:
  • Inclusion
  • Sustainability
