This chapter reviews the book Sara Levi-Tanai: hayim shel yetzirah (Sara Levi-Tanai: A Life of Creation) (2015), edited by Henia Rottenberg and Dina Roginsky. Sara Levi-Tanai chronicles the life of Sara Levi-Tanai, a choreographer, actor, writer, composer, and lyricist. It also looks at her contributions in a variety of artistic media (dance, music, literature, and children’s songs). Levi-Tanai was the founder and chief artistic director (1950–1990) of the Inbal Dance Theatre. Her writing was restricted mainly to short stories and lyrics. Among her early works were three novellas. The book explores ethnic and gendered interpretations of Inbal’s choreography as well as Levi-Tanai’s choreographic achievements, It also includes personal encounters with Levi-Tanai.
