The Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre
was established in 1989, by the Dellal family from London, the Tel – Aviv Municipality, the Tel – Aviv Foundation, and theMinistry of Culture and Education, following the initiative of Ze’ev Sokolovsky ,Mr Shlomo Lahat the Mayor of Tel Aviv –Yaffo and The Tel Aviv Foundation.
The Suzanne Dellal Centre is home for the Israeli creator who brings the experience of Israeli life to the stage. This experience focuses on Israeli identity and reveals its various faces. By using all aspects of the local culture and by exploring the past, the Israeli creator touches the whole of our social identity and acts as a mirror which reflects our own personality. Like its surroundings, the Israeli creator is full of contradictions: he deals with pain and anger and uses his body to create and express physical force, but he is also soft, lyric and attentive as he caresses the lonely self that resides in each of us; he stays loyal to his origins and heritage but is not afraid to provoke and ridicule them; he raises many questions but supplies little answers. He is always original and exists in present time.
