About the project
The Kolben (formerly Kombina) Dance Company was founded in 1995 by Amir Kolben, previously the artistic director and choreographer of the Jerusalem Tamar Dance Company. The troupe is known for its athleticism, complex partnering, and drama. It incorporates dance and theater, live and recorded music, large screen video projections and computer animation in a constant search for new artistic forms, and for unexpected combinations among media. The troupe has performed in the U.S., Hungary, China, Germany, Holland, India, Senegal, Chile and Colombia. In addition to public performances, the company has a dance school and sponsors community outreach activities to foster Jerusalem’s dance community. The company has its studio at the Jacob & Hilda Blaustein Civic Center.
