Description: A panel with some of Israel’s most well known and notorious theatre makers making theatre now in Israel and across Europe. Get an understanding of the kinds of theatre Israeli theatre artists and companies are making. What are the trends? What are the subjects covered? What are the themes explored? Is anything off-topic or too taboo? Do American plays get done in Israel? Then have an opportunity to virtually meet, talk to them, ask questions, and form relationships.

Moderated by Hadar Galron
