Batsheva Dance Company
By Ohad Naharin

"...one of the most fascinating dancemakers on the planet"
—The New York Times on Ohad Naharin

One of today's most influential and daring choreographers, Ohad Naharin-last at BAM with the critically acclaimed  Three (2007 Next Wave Festival)-returns with the exhilarating and sensual new work  Max.

Creating powerful images and emotions, the outstanding dancers from Israel's Batsheva Dance Company continue to challenge the body's physical possibilities, as they veer from concentrated to gorgeously expansive movements. A marvelously skewed solo-all flying limbs and nerve-rattling balances-melts into a sprawling ensemble from which a single dancer magically materializes.  Max gathers its steam through the juxtaposition of bodies in motion and at rest, alone and together, culminating in an unforgettable, cathartic portrait of movement at the brink.
