Very interesting dance by Ohad. It makes an interesting point...audiences tend to "project" their own fears, issues and preoccupations on a work of art, even if the work of art is meant to be "neutral" or abstract, even. This seems to be a case in point, highlighting or hitting a nerve of the current Israeli/Palestinian problems.

<B>THEY STRIP AWAY PRETENSE OF WORDS</B> <BR>By CLIVE BARNES in The NY Post, who also reviews Martha Clarke's "Vienna: Lusthaus (Revisited)"<P><BR>May 19, 2002 -- Some people are unwilling to try theater that isn't either a standard play or musical. But there are worthy alternative works out there that creatively combine music and drama, including those by such masters as Jerzy Grotowski, Tadeusz Kantor and Lee Breuer, not to mention pieces by modern multi-media gurus Robert Wilson and Robert Lepage. <P>Two recent examples of music theater, Ohad Naharin's "Naharin's Virus" and Martha Clarke's "Vienna: Lusthaus (Revisited)," add a twist to the genre by deposing the word and making dance the instrument with the muscle.<P><A HREF="http://www.nypost.com/entertainment/48244.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

BARRY DAVIS - The Jerusalem Post, Oct. 3, 2002:
Quote:
One for the crowd

"I work a lot abroad, but many of the foreign companies and artists I work with have never even heard of Anaphase," says the internationally renowned dancer-musician-choreographer, and Batsheva Dance Company artistic director.

Batsheva Dance Company performs Anaphaza at the Esplanade this weekend
By Sean Au for channelnewsasia


Where can you get a blend of modern theatre, opera, film and rock in a dance?

The Esplanade is the answer, as it is putting on one such programme by an Israeli dance company this weekend.

Anaphaza has been performed by the Batsheva Dance Company extensively in the past 10 years throughout Europe and America.

Its choreographer describes the dance as "sculpture in a big space" and the performance pushes the dancers' limits.

I just love having a dance company named after me.

Review of <I>Anaphaza</I> by Batsheva Dance Company in Singapore's Business Times:

Quote:
November 2, 2002
<B>I feel the earth move . . .</B>

The 90-minute piece mined veins of power, abstraction and humour. Interspersing the passages of dance were 'moments' created onstage like a man suspended on wires who swung in sideways, talking of the panic that exists behind laughter; or balloons being let off; a Naharin crooning a song dressed in diva red.

Lawrence van Gelder gives us a brief preview of "Anaphaza" (coming to the 2003 Lincoln Center Festival) in the NY Times:
Quote:
A DANCE WITH A PAST

Not many works of dance can lay claim to having caused turmoil at the highest levels of government; to prompting the dance company's artistic director, who is the piece's choreographer, to submit his resignation; and to offering members of the audience an opportunity to take part in the performance.
