Being an immigrants' country, Israeli theater represents the wonderful mixture of
many cultural origins. There are numerous small and large theater groups of various
styles and genres.

legacy that maintains an intense dialogue with innovative modern theatrical thinking.
Ha-Bima Theater was originated in Russia, and is now considered to be Israel's national
theater company. The Ha-Bima Theater group presents both classical and contemporary
plays. It was the only theater group in the country until 1945.
Ha-Kameri Theater was established in Tel Aviv in 1945. It was the first municipal
theater company, offered a local, Israeli alternative to Ha-Bima. Its actors were
younger, their Hebrew was more fluent, and the plays they presented differed from
Ha-Bima, which was influenced by Eastern European Theater. To this day the two theater
groups differ in style. Ha-Kameri attempts to deal with social and political issues
and to place emphasis upon the contemporary, daring aspects of the theater, while
Ha-Bima continues to combine classical plays with original Israeli material and contemporary
plays from Europe and the United States.
