The Culture Ministry and the Jerusalem municipality will not support three performances in Jerusalem International Dance Week, which begins Tuesday, because they feature partial nudity. The measure conflicts with the position of Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit regarding government support for cultural events that include nudity. In a related matter, according to various sources the Culture Ministry intervened in a number of works presented this month in the Curtain Up Dance Festival, a forum for independent choreographers organized by the ministry. In response to a query by Haaretz, Mendelblit said that both incidents would be investigated. Jerusalem International Dance Week is an annual event produced by Machol Shalem Dance House, an umbrella organization for independent dance artists in the capital.

Jerusalem international festival is told government funds cannot be used to subsidise certain performances. For the third time in a year a big Israeli arts festival — this time Jerusalem International Dance Week — has been told by officials acting for the culture minister, Miri Regev , that it cannot use government funds to subsidise three of 28 performances because they involve either full or partial nudity. The latest intervention follows a similar move targeting two performances involving nudity in the Israel Festival this summer and in the recent Curtains Up dance festival. Among the artists whose work has been drawn into the row are Adi Shildan and Nir Vidan, co-creators and performers of The Restlessness of Winged Creatures. The artists, who are gay, told the Guardian the purpose of the work was to challenge stereotypes by asking the audience to observe their bodies even as the performance deconstructed ideas of gender.
