The Suzanne Dellal Centre for Dance and Theatre is Israel’s home for dance and the premier presenter of Israeli and international contemporary dance companies, located in Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv.
Established in 1989, the Suzanne Dellal Centre is located in the center of the historic Neve Tzedek neighborhood in Tel Aviv, just minutes from the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
The Centre was established by the Dellal Family of London – England, in honor of their daughter Suzanne, as well as the Municipality of Tel Aviv Yaffo, the Tel Aviv Foundation, and the Israeli Ministry of Culture and Education.
The Suzanne Dellal Centre’s beautiful and sprawling multi-level campus consists of four performance halls, numerous rehearsal studios, a fine-dining restaurant and cafe, and wide plazas that host various outdoor performances and events throughout the year.
The mission of the Suzanne Dellal Centre is to cultivate, support, and promote the art of contemporary dance in Israel. The Centre pursues this mission by offering a variety of events, festivals, and workshops across artistic disciplines, ensuring that dance stays in close relationship with all art forms. The Centre hosts courses for choreographers, musicians, designers and lighting personnel as well as theater and acting workshops and lectures by renowned artists and writers, aimed both at the general public as well as special programs specifically for children.
The Suzanne Dellal Centre has two primary goals: the first is to support and facilitate the top-quality presentation of Israeli and international choreographers; the second is to create world-class dance productions and engaging educational activities. As a result, the Centre has launched dozens of successful and innovative programs to nurture and support new work and emerging artists, providing visible platforms to share new creations with large audiences.
