Press release: Batsheva Dance Company
Barbican Theatre | 28 Apr - 1 May
Batsheva, Israel's foremost dance company return to BITE, the Barbican's year round performing arts programme. Batsheva take to the stage for 4 performances only with choreographer Ohad Naharin's strikingly sensual new work, Naharin's Virus. Based on Peter Handke's absurdist play Offending the Audience and set to an achingly beautiful score by Arab-Israeli composer Habib Alla Jamal, the company of 16 dancers punctuate moments of stillness with frenetic energy. These contradictory changes in style and attitude draw you into Naharin's unique world which the New York Times have so perfectly summed up as 'the calligraphy of the body.'
'Naharin carves out a world where madness waltzes with grace'
