Batsheva – The Young Ensemble performs Ohad Naharin's Bessie Award-winning dance, Naharin's Virus, inspired by the great Austrian writer Peter Handke's play, Offending the Audience. Originally created in collaboration with Batsheva dancers, the work employs Naharin’s coolly seductive aesthetic to explore the boundaries of language. Naharin's Virus features a varied soundtrack which includes classical music, original music by Karni Postel, and adaptations of traditional Arabic music by Habib Alla Jamal and Shama Khader.
Please note this piece contains strong language, and there will be no late seating.
