The School of Visual Theatre was founded in Jerusalem in 1986 in order to promote an inter-disciplinary approach in art, offering an alternative to conventional ideas about creating art. During its 30 years of activity the school has nurtured a new generation of artists that have deeply influenced artistic creation in Israel.
Aims: The school aims to train artists for whom inter-discipline, visual expression and their connection to performance constitute first and foremost a worldview. Hence the school aspires to expose its students to a multiplicity of artistic realms, believing that encountering a variety of skills enriches their creative language. The school gives its students practical tools and theoretical knowledge in a wide spectrum of performing arts (theatre, dance, puppetry, voice), visual arts (drawing, sculpture, space design, lighting), and the screen (video and animation), while encouraging them to venture into independent research and aspire to develop their own personal unique and innovative creative language. To this end, the school combines group study and personal tutoring that nurtures each individual according to their own needs and artistic leanings.
