The Boostan Home for Theater Dance Presents:



A three-year program for creative dancers



The program targets creative individuals who wish to research what a contemporary dancer is and what contemporary dance is; those who wish to develop their creative space together with other artists, to enhance a thinking body into the creation of another artist and a personal work of art. 

All applicants must be a minimum of 18 years of age. 

The three-term school year will run from October to July.

In each term, students will both participate as dancers in a piece by a guest choreographer, and develop themselves as independent artists through different classes and workshops, theoretical research and artistic guidance for their personal work.

Each year, Re-Search’s residency program gives three choreographers an opportunity to receive a work space (studio/stage) for a period of three months. During their residence period, the choreographers create a new piece and share their work process with the program’s students.

Re-Search is a two-year program for dance artists.

The students enrolled in our full-time program attend classes for five days a week. They engage in physical, stage and creative research and participate in technique classes, work with choreographers, acting classes, theory and workshops with our diverse and fascinating faculty. Alongside this full-term program, we now also offer an integrated residency program. We invite choreographers with prior experience to join us in research for a new work. Research will be conducted alongside the educational program, as the process and its results will be shared with students. 



Artists in residence will receive:

  • A studio for rehearsals up to 4 mornings a week – 12/8 meters, equipped with mirrors, a wooden floor and a music system

  • A stage for rehearsals – each choreographer will have several days (in accordance with school curriculum) to assembly their lighting/set on stage

Specs: The modular theater hall can host up to 160 spectators. It is equipped with music and lighting systems, and lighting and sound controls (lighting operator/technician at additional charge)

  • Performances:

 - A stage for an intimate performance at the end of the residency period

 - A full-length performance of the works created by all three resident choreographers at the Boostan Theater in July 2016, with a 70/30 revenue share.

 - A full-length performance of the works created by all three resident choreographers at Mahsan 2 in Jaffa in July 2016, with a 70/30 revenue share.

  • Artistic Guidance 

Choreographers may request artistic consulting from Or Marin and/or Oran Nachum, who will be happy to accompany the work in process.

  • Free use of kitchen and balcony – coffee, fridge, microwave oven, smoking zone



Resident Artists will share:

  • Three open rehearsals with the students enrolled in Re-search’s full program, one at the end of each month:

  • At the end of the first month, the initial ideas behind the work/references/thoughts/music will be presented verbally and discussed with the students.

  • At the end of the second month, segments from the movement/theatrical research will be demonstrated and discussed.

  • At the end of the third month, the choreographers will open a lighting/stage rehearsal with the students, followed by a discussion.

  • A Workshop – The choreographers will host a three hour long workshop, in which they will examine some of the ideas and materials as part of their artistic research process.

  • A New Work – At the end of the residency period, the choreographers will present a new piece (about 20 minutes long). It will be performed, together with the works of the other participating artists, in the summer of 2016.
