INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
The Incubator Theater began operating in 2005, in the center of Jerusalem, as a project whose main objective was to build an infrastructure for original theater in the city. During the past 10 years, the Theater has put on more than 1.300 shows from 30 original productions and plays, including a television series. It has also gained the recognition of public bodies such as the Jerusalem municipality and the Ministry of Culture. The Theater aims to be a significant agent of cultural change in Jerusalem and an active force in developing an urban climate of pluralism and openness. The Theater strives to be a meeting place that attracts actors, writers, and other theater artists, a focal point that stimulates cultural discourse on the complexities and unique aspects of Israeli society, while serving as a “greenhouse” for creating original and innovative theater, which is both entertaining and thought-provoking, for broad and diverse audiences.
