Home – that’s the place where you can get creative, turn on the music, dance, fantasize, go a little wild. No censorship, no criticism. Once a year, Tmuna Theatre creates that feeling of freedom for performing artists, inviting them to create dance that is not bound by any prior definitions or expectations. Intimadance 2010 – ‘Ornament and Crime’, directed by Nava Zuckerman and Ariel Efraim Ashbel, took place July 29 – August 1, 2010; a celebration of uninhibited creativity.

Photographer Gadi Dagon, whose iconic images of dance and theatre are at the heart of the Israeli cultural scene, comes into this space as a co-creator, moving with the moment and the mood.
