“They are an absolute thrill to watch” –The Guardian (UK) on "Sadeh21"
Brooklyn, NY/October 8, 2014—Celebrating its 50th anniversary, Batsheva Dance Company returns to BAM with the US premiere of Sadeh21, an intensely emotional work by artistic director Ohad Naharin. In Sadeh21, Naharin sculpts the space and sound to produce a work bounding with originality and passion. The piece features 18 dancers in a journey that explores new ground, set to music by Autechre, Brian Eno, Angelo Badalamenti, and others. Naharin’s sensation-based Gaga technique promotes the discovery of new ways of moving, leading the sinewy dancers to unconventional heights. Projecting both strength and a poignant sensitivity, the magnetic dancers’ bodies move with stunning electricity in a work hailed as “contemporary dance at its most bare, raw, and intimate” (The Toronto Standard).
Batsheva Dance Company is currently embarking on a commemorative tour to celebrate its 50th anniversary. They will also perform in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and Washington DC in the US; Paris, Lyon, Amsterdam, Dresden, Prague, and Montpelier in Europe.
