With the new production HOWL, Amos Ben-Tal / OFFprojects won the Dioraphte Prize 2016 at the Dutch Dance Festival in Maastricht.

The amount of € 10.000,- is made available by the Dioraphte Foundations with the purpose to promote the selected work abroad. This year’s jury consisted of Eddie Nixon (The Place, UK), Pierre Thys (Theatre de Liège, BE) and Christian Watty (International tanzmesse nrw, DE). The jury about HOWL:

“It is not only the multidisciplinary form of HOWL that makes the production suitable for an international tour. Probably a more important element of the piece is the way Amos Ben-Tal enters into a dialogue with the audience, a necessary concept within nowadays society. By searching for the diversity, the complex and at the same time universal and common ground of us human, Amos invites into a conversation. Supported by the exceptional skills of the performers, he makes us become aware of our own humanity.”

During the Dutch Dance Festival in Maastricht, Amos Ben-Tal / OFFprojects and Spinvis gave a preview of HOWL in the Centre Ceramique. HOWL will have its première on January 27th, 2017 during CaDance Festival in Den Haag.
