Our 20th season: 22-23 is going to be BIG!
With great excitement we opened the 2022-2023 season, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Kama Dance company! Many things have happened since the first performance of “Secret Garden” – Tamir Ginz’s first creation masterpiece with which a young group of dancers took the stage in May 2003. NOW, the company is thriving with an outstanding international reputation and a team of 40, dancers and staff, all of whom live in Beer Sheva, the capital of the Negev, and share a groundbreaking vision for making quality art.
We are proud to open a season that includes many programs in the repertoire, new creations, educational activities in Beer Sheva and throughout the country, prestigious tours abroad and countless dreams for the future.
Our highly acclaimed evening “LEGENDS” with works by master international choreographers – Marco Gocke (Germany) and Johan Inger (Sweden) will perform in an extensive national tour which will open at the beautiful Performing Arts Hall in Herzliya on 8.9.22.
