The year 2019 ended for Fine 5 with a successful performance at the International Dance Week in Jerusalem. In addition, we were able to watch 6 performances at the festival and "perceive" the historic sites of Jerusalem. Our travel was supported by the Estonian Cultural Endowment and helped by the Estonian Embassy in Tel Aviv!
"Generations" is co-operation project with Israeli choreographers-directors Stav Marin and Neta Weiner and we are very proud for possibility to perform this play for Israeli audience. This night was very special for us! Thank you MASH Dance House for hosting "Generations".
