Batsheva – The Young Ensemble


“Its immediate visceral and kinetic impact mostly makes you want to jump onstage and dance,” proclaimed The New York Times about the original Decadance, created in 2000 by Batsheva Dance Company’s acclaimed artistic director Ohad Naharin. For their Joyce debut, the talented young dancers of Batsheva’s Young Ensemble perform an ever-changing Decadance in which, once again, Naharin combines excerpts from previous works—including Zachacha (1998), George and Zalman (2006), Max (2007), Seder (2007), Mabul (1992), Sadeh21 (2011), Zina (1995), Kyr (1990), Three (2005), and Naharin’s Virus (2001)—into a seventy minute evening set to music ranging from the Beach Boys to Vivaldi.
