Israeli Artists Project (yap)

    The Israeli Artists Project – IAP (pronounced yap) aims to connect the Israeli and American communities through Theater and the Arts.

    IAP produces Israeli plays in both English and the original Hebrew versions with the same cast on alternating nights. The goal is to showcase different aspects of Israeli culture and society with a variety of plays.

    Besides Theater, IAP plans to showcase other forms of art and entertainment to the New York audiences and beyond.

    IAP first play was Scoop, which ran for two weeks at the 777 theater in March 2018. SCOOP explores how far people will go for their loved ones and personal interests. The play follows Benny, a journalist who faces a moral dilemma when he must choose between his family, career and national security. How far he will go for the Scoop of his life?

    The next play is Best Friends by Anat Gov, which will have a staged reading on October 30th and a 10-minute presentation at the AICF Gala on November 4th. Best Friends explore how friendships face the challenge of time as we meet 3 best friends at their 40’s who look back at how their friendship evolved from age 17.
