Batsheva Dance Company

March 8–9, 2024
Zellerbach Hall


Ohad Naharin, a titan of contemporary dance, brings his powerhouse Tel Aviv–based company to Berkeley for the Bay Area premiere of a daring new work. In the company’s words, “MOMO has two souls. One sends long roots to the depths of the earth—a soul that embodies archetypes and myths of hardened, raw masculinity, and the other is in a constant search for an individual and distinct DNA; one moves within its own autonomous and independent force field and the other is a constellation of elements that spin around the same nucleus—alternately drifting away and towards it, making room for necessary tenderness and catharsis.” Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s Landfall and Philip Glass’ Metamorphosis provide the slow simmering musical backdrop.
