In Ohad Naharin's "YAG," Batsheva's first production adapted especially for the screen, Naharin uses cinematic language to communicate his work both as director and choreographer. The disappearance of the stage, now replaced by the cinematic frame, creates a direct encounter with the dancers. Stream the work during this international premiere, one-time screening on November 21 at 9pm Eastern Time for NY audiences.
Video artist Roee Shalti, who regularly films Batsheva, filmed and edited the piece with Naharin. The bare space, using the same lighting throughout, is the setting for refined movement. YAG was filmed during October 2020 at Batsheva's Varda Studio, Suzanne Dellal Center, Tel Aviv.
Engage afterwards: a Live Talk with Ohad Naharin, Sunday, November 22, 9 pm TLV (UTC+2) exclusively for ticket holders, free of charge!
