Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company (KCDC), one of the leading dance companies in the world, is widely identified with the work of Artistic Director Rami Be’er whose exclusive and unique choreographic character has become the company’s trademark both in Israel and abroad. With its technically strong and physically eclectic cast of dancers and its dynamic sensibility, KCDC characterizes Israeli dance at its best and performs regularly in the most respected theaters and at leading festivals worldwide.
KCDC was founded in 1973 by the late Yehudit Arnon who laid the foundation for today's thriving International Dance Village which was developed and continues to evolve into a first -class center for dance under the leadership of Rami Be'er and KCDC staff.
KCDC is situated in a most extraordinary and beautiful location; the International Dance Village in Kibbutz Ga'aton, Israel. The International Dance Village is the heart and home of the company and is comprised of a total of over 60 Israeli and international dancers. These dancers make up KCDC’s main company, KCDC's second company (KCDC 2), and KCDC’s 5-month & 10-month international dance program Dance Journey (link). KCDC also hosts an annual Summer Intensive (link) for local and international dancers as well as year-round courses.
