Based in Tel Aviv and led by renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin for the past 27 years, Batsheva is known worldwide for its innovative and distinctive style.

The eighteen dancers of Batsheva’s senior company are cast globally and trained by Naharin in his original movement language he has coined “Gaga.” Set to a wide range of music from Gregorian chant to tango to hip-hop, Naharin’s newest work, Venezuela, explores the relationship between movement and the content it represents and juxtaposes the familiar with the unfamiliar. Don’t miss this extraordinary chance to witness one of the world’s most important contemporary dance companies make their Boston Debut!
