Venezuela: Batsheva Dance Company

March 12, 2019
Memorial Auditorium


Batsheva’s artistic director, Ohad Naharin, is widely considered to be one of the great dance pioneers of his generation. In Venezuela, choreographer Naharin and his dancers explore the dialogue and conflict between movement and content through two 40-minute sections performed back to back. Gradually we become aware that the second section is choreographed identically to the first, but everything about it has changed. How? And why? 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.
