Support New Work

Be a part of the continuation of thought-provoking, boundary-pushing contemporary creation. Batsheva’s works are at the forefront of dancemaking in Israel and worldwide, and many of them are have entered the canon of international dance. Each season, Batsheva stages new dance works, holding over 250 performances before 100,000 viewers, in Israel and around the world.

Staging a new piece involves many hours of rehearsing in the studio, working with co-creators on the set, lighting, costume, and music design, as well as set, props, and costume production expenses. We invite you to take part and help secure the continuation of new groundbreaking dancemaking.

Investing in the Future Generation

Ensure culture and dance education for all ages and throughout Israel. Batsheva is committed to bringing diverse populations closer to arts and culture in general, and to the art of dance in particular, with the belief that the existence of art is essential to the development of a better and more advanced society.

The company performs throughout Israel, often subsidizing the expenses involved in holding shows far from central Israel. Batsheva also places special emphasis on cultivating a young audience through Batsheva Ensemble’s morning performance project in schools, which has long been considered worldwide as a perfect model for dance and performance art education.
