This year, we offer you a concentrated festival comprising, almost entirely, of original productions that will flood the imagination with additional, possible realities. A festival that curates reality through meticulously produced artworks, expands your mind and also tries, wherever possible, to influence that reality in return. During the three weeks of Mekudeshet 2018—and actually at any given moment—we try to go back to our roots, to the spring or the heart of the city, and to call on everyone who believes—no matter what—to come to Jerusalem, to come find what is sacred for them, to come in peace.Tongues of Fire
A conversation with an Italian football coach who sees the world at pitch level
For over two decades, Italian soccer coach Stefano Cuzin, has been viewing the world through the prism of the soccer team he is training. Contrary to coaches who work with the big European teams, Stefano chose a different route. He worked with youth departments for years in Cameroon and the Congo, won championships in Libya (before the revolution), moved to East Europe, trained the crazy rich teams in the Gulf and was even the first Italian on the touchline of the Palestinian league as the coach for the Hebron team, Ahli Al-Khaleel. Uri Levy in an open conversation with a very unusual soccer coach from his current residence in South Africa about cultures, politics, society, life and everything ball-related.
