Meet Me in the Market

׳Meet Me in the Market׳ is a choreographic tour of the Mahane Yehuda Market inspired by Jackie Kennedy.
On Valentine’s Day, 1962, Jackie Kennedy invited the world, through the camera’s lens, on a tour of the newly renovated White House. In that moment, she established a new image of the perfect woman, delicate yet strong, fashionable yet modest, famous yet utterly mysterious. After nearly 60 years, she invites you to a presidential romp in the Mahane Yehuda Market, which, like her, is rich in history, secrets and life.

Stage Management: Tomer Giat, Music: Ehud Banai, Yossi Banai, Count Basie, Hadag Nachash
