About the project
The Zik (Spark) Group is a group of artists who create a unique art form of indoor and outdoor performances combining sculpture, music and theater.The group, which was established in 1985, consists primarily of graduates of the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem. Shows have included the construction of giant sculptures that are then set on fire in front of the audience, the activation of sculpture-like structures that function as machines, and the creation of objects that are transformed in material and shape in real time. The Zik Group has developed a strong following in Israel and Europe and has performed internationally, including at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC in 1998. The Jerusalem Foundation has supported Zik Group performances at various Jerusalem events and festivals and in 2004 provided support for production of a book to celebrate the group’s 20th anniversary.
