By Ohad Naharin
Batsheva Dance Company

"Ohad Naharin doesn’t just choreograph pieces; he molds them to dancers’ bodies and injects them under the skin of their souls."
—The Village Voice

Ohad Naharin's choreography is infused with the rarest of qualities, experimenting boldly with body language to produce a distinctive and arresting combination of content and form. Noted for its physical virtuosity and bewitching lines, Tel Aviv's Batsheva Dance Company conveys the daring spirit and exacting discipline of its artistic director.

Naharin's Hora unfurls a ravishing vision of abstraction, sensuality, and playfulness. Isao Tomita's inventive soundtrack, a collage of classical masterpieces (Strauss, Wagner, Grieg, Debussy, and even John Williams' Star Wars theme) played on an array of vintage analog synths, provides harmonic elegance to this remarkable work.
