BATSHEVA DANCE COMPANY Venezuela, by Ohad Naharin

buy ticket



In Venezuela Naharin and the dancers explore dialogue as well as conflict between movement and the content it represents. Many questions and a few answers arise about the choices the choreographer has. Naharin attempts to include the audience in this freedom of choice along with its endless scope of possibilities, while making a critical comment about all of us.

Considered one of the great dance pioneers of his generation and acclaimed around the globe, Ohad Naharin has been director of the Batsheva Dance Company since 1990, converting it into one of the most important in the world, with over 250 performances a year. Naharin is the creator of an innovative and rich language of movement known as ‘gaga’, which has spread through the industry like wildfire.

Venezuela, with its wonderful dancers, is a fascinating and multifaceted piece that contains a surprise that remains with the viewer long after leaving the theater“. (Yael Efrati, Timeout, May 2017)
