Batsheva Ensemble - Deca Dance
Batsheva Ensemble is the younger wing of Israel’s outstanding and world class contemporary dance group Batsheva Dance Company and this is their first visit to the UK.
Led by choreographic supremo Ohad Naharin, Batsheva’s dancers were described as “acrobats of God” by the San Francisco Chronicle. Naharin has said of his dancers that he wants them to be “people that are connected to their sensuality, to their demons. People that are capable of laughing at themselves. Musicality, groove – I’m attracted to people with groove” and in the Ensemble he has selected dancers, aged between 18 and 24 and from countries around the world that are just that. Rarely will you see such urban, gritty and skilled dancers as these.
Deca Dance is constantly updated and so offers a fresh look at the work created by Batsheva every time it is performed. It is set to a sensational compilation of music ranging from The Beach Boys to Vivaldi and on to Dean Martin!
