Biographical / Historical Note
Hadas Ophrat, a multi-disciplinary artist and writer based in Jerusalem, is a leading figure in interdisciplinary art in Israel. As an active artist, he has staged dozens of solo exhibitions and performances, designed and directed over 30 visual theater works. As a social activist, he initiated the establishment of the Lewinsky Garden Library for asylum seekers and migrant workers in Tel Aviv. He is the founder of the Train Theatre; the School of Visual Theatre, and Hazira Performance Art - all in Jerusalem. In the last decade he explored the role of art and culture as motivators of urban change. In 2016 he was awarded the Israel Prize for Performing Arts, the supreme token of appreciation bestowed by the state.
