Luminato: Sadeh21 by Ohad Naharin/Batsheva Dance Company
In its long-awaited return to Toronto, Tel Aviv’s acclaimed Batsheva Dance Company, co-founded by Martha Graham, presents an electrifying new, full-length work choreographed by the company’s Artistic Director, Ohad Naharin.
Rooted in the language of Gaga, a revolutionary form of dynamic expression developed by Naharin, the work juxtaposes explosive, frenetic bursts of energy with graceful, tender, lyrical passages in configurations that range from solos and duets to group formations as precise as any chorus line.
Commissioned by Luminato. Presented in collaboration with the Israel Festival, Jerusalem.
Friday, June 15
Stay after the performance for an onstage discussion with Batsheva Dance Company’s Artistic Director Ohad Naharin and Michael Trent, Artistic Director of Dancemakers.
