Established in 1964 as a repertoire company by the Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild, The Batsheva Dance Company is one of the world’s most prominent and renowned dance troupes. The company stands at the forefront of the local and international dance world, thanks to the bold choreographic voice of the house choreographer Ohad Naharin and to the uncompromising quality of the company’s dancers.
MOMO has two souls. One sends long roots to the depths of the earth – a soul that embodies archetypes and myths of hardened, raw masculinity, and the other is in a constant search for an individual and distinct DNA; one moves within its own autonomous and independent force field and the other is a constellation of elements that spin around the same nucleus – alternately drifting away and towards it, making room for necessary tenderness and catharsis.
With a soundtrack comprised mostly of the album Landfall by the legendary Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet, one of the foremost contemporary classical music ensembles, a shared passion of deep sorrow and beauty unfolds on stage. Relinquishment becomes a dedicated search for a crack, and glitches in the movement code turn out to be free, playful, and emotive material.
