Gvanim BeMahol, the Shades of Dance Festival, was initiated to encourage the creation of Israeli choreography. The first competition took place in the city of Ramleh in 1986 as a joint initiative of Omanut La’am and Israel Discount Bank cultural projects, and from there the festival moved to the Duhl Centre in Tel Aviv. With the establishment of the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance in 1989, the festival found a permanent home.
Held once every two years, Gvanim has launched the careers of many prominent Israeli choreographers, including: Liat Dror and Nir Ben Gal, Tamar Borrer, Inbal Pinto, Barak Marshall, Yasmeen Godder, Emanuel Gat, Ronit Ziv, Shlomi Bitton, Anat Danieli, Renana Raz, Noa Wertheim and Adi Sha’al, Itzik Galili, Sally Ann Friedland, Yoram Karmi and Yossi Yungman. Gvanim began in the city of Ramleh in 1986 as a joint initiative of Omanut La’am under the direction of Yossi Frost, and Israel Discount Bank cultural projects under the direction of Yigal Sasson, and from there the festival moved to the Duhl Centre in Tel Aviv. With the establishment of the Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance in 1989, the festival found a permanent home. The festival’s past directors have been Elida Gera, Naomi Perlov, Hanoch Ben Dror, and Idit Herman.
