The annual festival that runs for one week each summer in New York City, has quickly grown into a unique platform of high quality work, presenting some of the most exciting and thought provoking artists working in the Mediterranean region. With an eclectic programming of performances that so far have included Egypt, Israel, Greece, Lebanon, Italy, Spain, Turkey, Canada, Morocco and the US, the festival's past two editions (2011 and 2012) have offered NYC audiences over 20 new works including NYC, USA and world premieres by established and young artists: Balletto Teatro di Sardegna, Lina Abiad, Mancopy Dansekompagni, Elias Aguirre, Rachel Erdos, Ido Tadmor, Korhan Basaran, Malika Zarra, are some of the artists that have honored Between the Seas with their participation.
