Project 48 Dance teams choreographers and dancers to create short dance pieces, working ’round the clock from idea to performance in 24 hours. Now in its 3rd edition, Project 48 Dance will take place on December 10 and 11, 2015.

How does it work?

Artistic Director Dana Ruttenberg initiated in this dance format in June 2013, based on teh 48 hour format popular in film and theatre. She invites choreographers, dancers and dramaturgs to take part. A lottery determines the number and gender of performers in the work for each choreographer, who then assembles the appropriate number of male and female dancers, drawing names at random from a hat. Then the dramaturgs each draw the name of a choreographer, and the teams are in place. They have 24 hours to create and rehearse a dance piece, complete with music, costumes, set and lighting – it’s a trip.
Watch the dance as it is created in real time – all rehearsals will take place at Bikurei HaItim, and videos will be streamed live via the Dana Ruttenberg Dance Group facebook page.
