Helmed by the dynamic and talented choreographer, Ohad Naharin, Batsheva Dance Company has been critically acclaimed and popularly embraced as one of the foremost contemporary dance companies in the world. Naharin’s compelling choreographic craft and inventive, supremely textured movement vocabulary, have propelled the company into a new era with his adventurous curatorial vision and distinctive choreographic voice. Naharin is also the originator of an innovative movement language, Gaga, which has enriched his extraordinary movement invention, revolutionized Batsheva’s training, and emerged as a growing force in the larger field of movement practices. In addition, Naharin is the subject of the highly-regarded Mr. Gaga documentary that recently had its Canadian premiere at Hot Docs and won the Audience Award: Documentary Spotlight at SXSW this past March. The company returns to Toronto for a second time in five years. Decadance 2017 will feature selected excerpts from Z/NA (1995), ANAPHASE (1993), MABUL (1992), NAHARIN’S VIRUS (2001), ZACHACHA (1998), SADEH 21 (2001), TELPHAZA (2006), THREE (2005) and MAX (2007). Excerpts subject to change.
