Anyone Know Where Pal. Dance Groups Are Appearing?

I'd like to arrange a "return-the-favor" to last night:

Protests disrupt Israeli dance performance in Edinburgh

Protesters have disrupted a performance by an Israeli dance company which was taking place at the Edinburgh International Festival. The show - Hora - by the Batsheva Dance Company, from Tel Aviv, had to be stopped three times after protests inside the Playhouse Theatre.
Earlier about 100 people gathered to sing, demonstrate and burn tickets outside the theatre.
Batsheva is partly funded by the Israeli government.

they disrupted the dance three times but did not cause it to finish early. Up to 12 activists were ejected from the theatre after interrupting the dancers. About 150 people protested outside the venue, brandishing signs that read "don't dance with Israeli apartheid" and burning tickets. A counter-demonstration was held by the Zionist Federation.  The Israel ambassador to Britain and Israeli minister Limor Livnat were in town to see the show.

The campaign.

Here's one group that could be targeted by human rights activists demanding full justice to 'honor-killings' victims, a halt to racial incitement, religious obscurantism, political dictatorship, lack of democratcy, elections, etc.


Al Zaytouna previewed Unto the Breach as a work in progress at Laban in June 2012. The full production will debut in London in November 2012. It is supported by a BBC Performing Arts Grant.


Leila Sukkar from Al Zaytouna has launched Cafe Palestine UK, a forum on Palestinian cuisine, culture and history. You can follow her on twitter @CafePalestineUK or find her on facebook.

And keep a watch out for Danadeesh who were at the Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival earlier this year:
The annual Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival officially begins on Thursday night.  The opening performance will be given by the super sassy British troupe Ballet Boyz at the Ramallah Cultural Palace. This is the seventh year of the festival and marks the continued growth of the range and scope of its activities. This year, performances will be held in Nablus, Hebron, Jerusalem and Ramallah. Big names in this year’s program include Nawel Skandrani Dance Company of Tunisia, The Royal Flemish Theater, Suzanne Miller and Allan Paivio Productions and Francesco Scavetta.

Or events as these.

Or this:

Except for the music, this reminds me of Israeli folkdanicng:

Demand Peace, Coexistence, Freedom of Expression, et al.

Be active!

They are famous for their attractive designs and they can easily match with any type of cloth. There are several companies which can provide you with different types of jimmy choo bag but the quality they provide is low. The leather which they use is of poor quality which ultimately results in a tattered bag. You should opt for a company that can provide you with high quality of jimmy choo handbag so that the designer jimmy choo outlet can serve your for a longer time

Celebrities like Britney Spears, Mischa Barton, and Sienna Miller etc are usually seen walking or attending functions, premiers, parties etc with their Lanvin handbag. If you want a bag with the perfect size, shape, color and even storage space for all of your things, think Lanvin bag and you will never regret the decision. Infect these bags are so stylish that you won’t find anyone disputing its beauty and remarkable finish.Link :

Chloe Marcie is forcing their way into people’s lives. People refer to advertisements in their daily lives because they are consumers. The Chloe Bag is usually manufacturers, retailers and salesmen. Their merchandise needs to be advertised to bring it to the attention to the customers. Thus nearly every product is advertised in some way. To a large extent, good advertising leads to success while bad advertising can mean failure. (Chloe Handbag)link to
