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 place in which death is a part of life, where there is no choice but to look it in the eye.
Three profound monologues enable you to close your eyes and pass through walls, to gain insight into the Saint Louis French Hospital, a hospice for terminally ill patients, through the testimonies of the hospital staff, which is right here on the other side of the street.
A place in which death is a part of life, where there is no choice but to look it in the eye. Three care takers in the hospital, who have been working there for many years, talk candidly about life and death, about the end, fear, separation and reconciliation, what there is and what there isn’t, the thin line between heaven and earth, and spiritual awakenings.
