Tmuna Theatre: A-Genre


The A-Genre Festival will take place at Tmuna Theatre from April 25 – 28, 2018. This year, artists from different disciplines were invited to reflect on the theme of The Backyard, in all its different associations. A-Genre provides a creative platform for those works that reach beyond the borders of genre and mainstream culture, it’s a place for questioning and experimentation. Art directors and curators of A-Genre are Nava Zuckerman and Nitzan Cohen, the festival was initiated by Yair Vardi, and is produced by Yael Fulman.

From the festival:

What meaning does “the Backyard” have today, at the social and political level in Israel and in the world? The backyard of the social network, the backyard of family history, the backyard of social mores and norms, the backyard of the national anthem, the backyard of childhood…

The festival will open on Wednesday, April 25th with a collaboration between Tmuna Theatre and the Polish Institute, a performance that combines painting, music, and poetry as painter Henryk Chesnik, musician Irak Viascik, and poet Tadeusc Dabrovski, meet onstage with Israeli actor Alit Kreiz.
