Batsheva’s Ohad Naharin is “one of the most fascinating dancemakers on the planet” with an ensemble of performers “who dance like demons” —New York Times.
Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company, has emerged as one of the world’s most accomplished contemporary choreographers. His artistic integrity and innovation, brought to life by the power of his 17-member company, are on full display in this masterwork. The piece is
propelled with breathtaking power through three sections—Bellus (Beauty), Humus (Earth), and Seus (This or Not This)—and interwoven with music by Brian Eno, the Beach Boys, and Bach. Critics have hailed the results as raw and elegant, violent and tender. Note: contains brief nudity.
