STG Presents Batsheva Dance Company - Venezuela at The Paramount Theatre on March 9, 2019.
BATSHEVA DANCE COMPANY
BY OHAD NAHARIN
BATSHEVA’S Ohad Naharin is known worldwide for his adventurous vision and distinctive choreographic voice. He is widely considered to be one of the great dance pioneers of his generation. Under Naharin’s direction for the past 27 years, Batsheva has become one of the world’s preeminent dance companies. Based in Tel Aviv, the 18 dancers of Batsheva’s senior company are cast globally and are trained by Naharin in his original movement language he has coined “Gaga.” A signature of Batsheva’s dancers is their visceral physicality combined with the depth and consistency of their training— a quality that is at once raw and virtuosic.
Batsheva returns to North America in Spring 2019 with a new evening-length work, Venezuela, in which Naharin and the dancers explore the dialogue and conflict between movement and the content it represents. Naharin created Venezuela in two 40-minute sections placed in juxtaposition. In this multi-faceted and compelling work, the endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play, and in turn, Venezuela compels the audience to challenge their own freedom of choice.

Gaga/dancers classes are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 16+.
These classes last for an hour and fifteen minutes and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. Gaga/dancers classes employ the specific vocabulary and skills that are part and parcel of a dancer’s knowledge. The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. Gaga/dancers deepens dancers’ awareness of physical sensations, expands their palette of available movement options, enhances their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriches their movement quality with a wide range of textures.
