Iris Erez will visit Reed College in Portland.

Two Israeli dance artists will visit U.S. universities this spring to conduct residencies. Former Batsheva Dance Company member Shahar Biniamini will teach Ohad Naharin’s Gaga technique at UCLA, and choreographer Iris Erez will conduct contemporary technique classes at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. Both will set work on students as part of their residencies. The annual Schusterman Visiting Israeli Artists Program, initiated by The Israel Institute, is designed to expose American students to contemporary Israeli arts and culture.
