About Platforma


Special social related art project created by Dana Dvorin and Keren Cohen Israeli.

Violence against women is a social phenomenon in Israel and across the world, every

year women are murdered, raped, humiliated and thrown to the streets, they are held

by force in communities with strict rules and only fraction of the stories becomes

public. The issue is marginalized and rarely gets the attention or resources which will

enable those women to exit the circle of violence in a way that they will be able to

support themselves in dignity without external dependency. The decision to join

forces with the national theatre of Israel, "Habima", is meant to integrate the

"unacceptable" with the most acceptable social, cultural and professional institute.

"Platforma in Habima" project will provide women home and sense of belonging, a

stage for personal expression and protest, a chance to make a real change in their lives

while learning and developing a carrier as independent women.
