Lineup Announced for The 2017 International Tmu-na Festival

The 2017 International Tmu-na Festival will be 16 days (October 23 - November 7, 2017) of works in the fields of theatre, performance, dance, music and plastic arts and its theme is "Encounters".

Encounters with unique productions from abroad (Poland, Germany, Austria and USA) who are visiting Israel, collaborations of Israel with Switzerland, Spain and Germany and artistic encounters of artists who thoroughly examine our current existential state, its edges, asking to "broadcast outside" mirroring and response as opposed to a constantly changing reality that lately seems to become more undermined in Israel and the world.

The encounters with international productions provide an observation on social processes, of both cultural and theatrical aspects, who take place not far from Israel and which in addition to the importance of observing outside they explain the processes happening in Israel.

The performances:
