The postcards tend to be a key component for Eurovision. The postcards are considered to be important for the host country. They tend to showcase the country off to the world, whilst helping promote a positive image for tourists who may wish to come to Israel. Dancing Israel will show off last years winning nation in a good light, as the countries best locations will be used.
These locations will be highlighted through the medium of dance, and will feature several different types of dance incorporating the beautiful landscapes of Israel. Each competing artist will also be involved as they will join the dancers in the specific setting of each postcard.
The postcards will feature prevalant dancers from Israel, and will include Stefan, Anna Aronov, Dana Frieder, Or Kahlon, Idan Sharabi, Batsheva Dance Company, Rona Lee Shimon, the Israeli Ballet and the Artistic Swimming Team.
These will all be filmed by successful music director Keren Wisdom who was also responsible for the video of Israel's winning entry from last year, "Toy".
