It’s all about women and their creative spirits at the Woman Festival in the  Holon Theater on March 1-4, just ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8.

The festival includes four nights of performances and conversations.

There’s musical theater from veteran actress Gila Almagor Agmon, joined by singer Ester Rada, actress Dana Ivgy, theater group Tziporela, Yehoram Gaon and others.

Another night brings the humorous acts of leading comic actress Hanna Laszlo, along with comic actors Yael Levental, Hadar Levi, Lirit Balaban, Shiran Huberman and several others.

One of the evening performances is in memory of songwriter and singer Dafna Eilat, who wrote for Chava Alberstein, Arik Einstein and Shlomo Artzi, and will feature Alberstein with Raz Shmueli, Karni Postel, Vered Picker and other musicians.

The event, “From Dafna to Eilat,” marks 20 years since Eilat’s death.

In “Mrs. Me,” Vered Picker, Anat Hitman, Tzili Yanko — all long-time members of other bands, including Shlomo Artzi, Nurit Galron and Mosh Ben Ari — join together onstage for the first time.

The trio will sing the works of some of their favorite female vocalists, including Aretha Franklin, Karen Carpenter, Dolly Parton, Tina Turner, as well as Adele and Lady Gaga.

More information and tickets to the Holon Women’s Day event can be found on the festival website.
