About the Choreographer

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 28 years, the Tel Aviv-based Batsheva has become one of the world’s preeminent dance companies. A signature of Batsheva’s dancers is their visceral physicality combined with the depth and consistency of their Gaga training — a quality that is at once raw and virtuosic.

About the Performance

Batsheva returns to Royce Hall with a new evening-length work, Venezuela, in which choreographer 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 multifaceted 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.
