Batsheva Dance Company: Venezuela

BY OHAD NAHARIN

Batsheva's Ohad Naharin is known worldwide for his adventurous vision and distinctive choreographic voice. He is widely considered to be one of the great dance pioneers of his generation. Under Naharin’s direction for the past 27 years, Batsheva has become one of the world’s preeminent dance companies. Based in Tel Aviv, the eighteen dancers of Batsheva’s senior company are cast globally and are trained
 by Naharin in his original movement language he has coined “Gaga”. A signature
 of Batsheva’s dancers is their visceral physicality combined with the depth and consistency of their training— a quality that is at once raw and virtuosic.

Batsheva returns to North America in Spring 2019 with a new evening-length work, Venezuela, in which Naharin and the dancers explore the dialogue and conflict between movement and the content it represents. Naharin created Venezuela in two 40-minute sections placed in juxtaposition. In this multi-faceted and compelling work, the endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play, and in turn, Venezuela compels the audience to challenge their own freedom of choice.
