Q&A with Artist-in-Residence in Dance Erica Dankmeyer
Ohad Naharin is one of the most original choreographic minds of our time—a modern guru whose pioneering dance language, Gaga, uses bodily self-awareness to produce constant, fluid motion and an unthinkable elasticity. Gaga, which has enriched Naharin’s extraordinary movement invention, revolutionized the company’s training,and emerged as a growing international force inthe larger field of movement practices for both dancers and non-dancers.
Batsheva Dance Company has been critically acclaimed and popularly embraced as one of the foremost contemporary dance companies in the world. Together with its junior Batsheva Ensemble,the company boasts a roster of 34 dancers drawn from Israel and abroad. Decadance is a look back at the past 10 years of their work.
