A project of the Vertigo contemporary dance troupe, the village welcomes visitors to take part in environmental workshops and mud-building.


A chicken-coop-turned-dance-studio provides the heart of the Vertigo Ecological Arts Village, a project of the Israeli contemporary dance troupe Vertigo. The aim is to nurture art and creativity that engage with the environment.

“Many artists are dealing with humanity, but I couldn’t separate what I’m working at, what I’m creating and how I’m living,” says Noa Wertheim, co-founder of the troupe.

Vertigo maintains a studio and school in Jerusalem, but the company also rehearses here in the eco-village in the Ela Valley, where bedrooms are lit by “green” electricity and showers are fashioned from discarded army beds. Hundreds of visitors take part in mud-building and green technology workshops.
