BETWEEN THE SEAS 2015 - A Festival of Mediterranean Performing Arts

Wild Project
195 East 3rd Street
10009 New York, NY
United States

Between the Seas was founded in 2010 by theater artist and scholar Aktina Stathaki as the first and only festival in North America focusing on contemporary Mediterranean performing artists. The annual festival that runs for one week each summer in New York City, has quickly grown into a unique platform of high quality work, presenting some of the most exciting and thought provoking artists working in the Mediterranean region. With an eclectic programming of performances that so far have included Egypt, Israel, Greece, Lebanon, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Canada, Morocco and the US, the festival's past editions have offered NYC audiences over 30 new works including NYC, USA and world premieres by established and young artists: Balletto Teatro di Sardegna, Lina Abiad, Mancopy Dansekompagni, Elias Aguirre, Rachel Erdos, Ido Tadmor, Korhan Basaran, Malika Zarra, are some of the artists that have honored Between the Seas with their participation.
