The museum, for the first time in Israel is wholly dedicated to presenting a dance and performance festival, and with the help of primary materials – a piano, a sword, a microphone, found-sound, a tree branch, an artwork – it’s turned into a space where one befriends death by operating in the space between the inanimate and the living.

Utilizing theatrical time, they envision the art world as a future site for ritual, which at the very least offers a new methodology that changes, even slightly, the experience of producing a festival.

Pool-Khan | Diver Festival

Pool-Khan is a Performative-Exhibition based on dance and performance works by various artists who courageously embarked on a six-month journey, drawing to a close on opening night, in which they set out to write a shared myth for the temple space of the Bat Yam Museum of Art.
