Batsheva Dance Company, critically acclaimed and popularly embraced as one of the foremost contemporary dance companies in the world, is led by Artistic Director Ohad Naharin, originator of the innovative movement language Gaga. Known for his adventurous vision and distinctive choreographic voice, Naharin is hailed as one of the world's preeminent contemporary choreographers, and widely considered to be one of the great dance pioneers of his generation. Venezuela explores the dialogue and conflict between movement and the content it represents. Naharin created Venezuela in two forty-minute sections placed in juxtaposition. In this multifaceted and compelling work, the endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play, and in turn, Venezuela calls the audience to challenge their own freedom of choice.
