For the entire evening, Bialik Square will turn into a European performance art complex that will operate with an urban-happening atmosphere for the entire family. the artistic program will include live shows of acrobatics, breakdance, circus and even a flamenco performance.
The event will be held as part of the White Night events of Tel Aviv, 28.6.2018, at Bialik Square, from 19:30 until the wee hours of the night.
From Austria we will exhibit “Dancing House” – an Interactive projection mapping and sound installation of the Austrian media-artist, director, choreographer and composer Klaus Obermaier – that will be projected on the front of Beit Ha’ir. In “Dancing House” the users are called upon to move, to jump, and thereby – as indicated in the title – bringing the building and themselves to dance.
From Lithuania we will host Konstantin Kosovec – a performer that combines circus, contemporary dance and aerial and pole acrobatics. Kosovec is performing internationally, and now Tel Aviv is also on his list.

OK World Wide has been competing in talent shows such as Britain’s Got talent, where they got to the semifinals, and in Romanian’s Got Talent, where they took second place.
