Ohad Naharin – Batsheva Dance Company
The Batsheva Dance Company was founded by the American choreographer Martha Graham and baroness Batsheva de Rotschild, whom the company was named after, and is now based in Tel-Aviv. Run by Ohad Naharin, leader of the Israeli contemporary dance and probably one of the greatest choreographers in the world, the company revisits the emblematic piece Three created in 2005. This triptych is based on musical choices which convey a particular atmosphere. In Bellus, the famous Goldberg Variations by Bach arouse a pure reflexive simplicity and organize this solo. Brian Eno’s uncluttered and meditative album Neroli creates the sound background in Humus in which the dancers move together and master their choreography perfectly. In Secus, the seventeen dancers play with boundaries like when we savour a moment of pleasure. On a tour through Europe, Three will be a special guest on the prestigious stage of the Opéra de Paris before performing at the Théâtre de Liège, its first appearance in Belgium.
