How do musicians and dancers learn from their old traditions to inform newness?  

Initial Trip March 8-14, 2016:  Middle East -  We explored the tension and cross-pollination between old and new techniques guiding music and dance practitioners in Ramallah, Bethlehem, Haifa, Jerusalem and other places..  

Second Trip March 9-18, 2017: Middle East - After interviewing arts experts from various parts of the region, we convened a group of master musicians and dancers at the Vertigo Eco Village for a three-day retreat and creative lab. This was followed by a trek hosted by Bedouin Musicians and Yair Dalal in the Arava Desert.
