Quotes & Highlights

“this is not dancing that you will see anywhere else …” —The New York Times
“It is not chemistry but alchemy. Ohad Naharin succeeded in turning the dancers into a cocoon of threads from which he draws knots, he cuts,  ties, unties, glues, combines and erases the gap between men and women, and mostly—he hypnotizes.” —Israeli poet Roni Somek

Description

Since its inception in 1964 with the personal assistance of Martha Graham, Israel’s Batsheva has evolved into one of the world’s most outstanding dance companies, internationally renowned for pushing the boundaries of cutting-edge dance with intense energy, rich sensuality and a culturally diverse dance language. Its repertoire comprises works by dance’s leading innovators, including choreographer Ohad Naharin, whose work blends beauty, anger, serenity and sarcasm to reflect life in his homeland. His newest piece, Three, comprises three parts: Bellus (Beauty), Humus (Earth) and Secus, which translates as both “this” and “not this.”
