SurFace was supported by a grant from the Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts and was part of the 2017 A-Genre Festival at Tmu-na Theatre in Tel Aviv.
“A brave theatrical act!”

Nofar Sela (aka Nufar Sela) is an interdisciplinary artist working in performance, visual art, and text. Sela is a member of Pandora Collective – an independent artists’ initiative based in Jerusalem – where she develops her works, accompanies the development of her colleagues’ works, and initiates and curates performance events.
In 2012 Sela received a BFA with distinction from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem. During her studies she participated in a student exchange program in Escola Massana, Barcelona. In 2007 Sela studied interdisciplinary art in the School of Visual Theatre, Jerusalem.
