NY Premiere of Batsheva’s Venezuela
Batsheva Dance Company and choreographer Ohad Naharin present the NY premiere of Venezuela
Acclaimed Choreographer Ohad Naharin and Batsheva’s 18-member company are renowned worldwide for their adventurous vision and distinctive movement language. Combining visceral physicality with a rigor and consistency in their training, Batsheva Dance Company compels audiences with its virtuosity and raw energy.
This singular company returns to BAM with a new evening-length work that explores the dialogue and conflict between movement and the content it represents. Created in two 40-minute sections placed in juxtaposition, Venezuela is a multifaceted work in which the endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play and, in turn, the audience confronts the limits of their own freedom of choice.
