The “superhumanly spry” (The New York Times) movers of Batsheva – The Young Ensemble will perform the award-winning Naharin’s Virus in the Ted Shawn Theatre. Embraced as part of one of the most prominent contemporary dance companies in the world, the company boasts an internationally diverse roster of dancers from Israel and beyond.
Adapted from Offending the Audience by Austrian playwright Peter Handke and enriched by Ohad Naharin’s innovative, wide-reaching movement research Gaga, Naharin’s Virus is described as being “as powerful as the eye of the storm” (The Jerusalem Post).
Under the inimitable direction of “one of the most important living choreographers” (The Guardian), the majority of dancers in The Young Ensemble later become members of Batsheva Dance Company.
Ohad Naharin discusses his history with Batsheva and what lies ahead in this PillowTalk.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BATSHEVA - THE YOUNG ENSEMBLE
“… no one can be immune to the emotional charge of the choreography… [the] calligraphy of the body is stunning…”
The New York Times
“What a splendid Virus… as powerful as the eye of the storm… the best show in town.”
“To think of Batsheva – The Young Ensemble as a second company is to represent inaccurately the power of this group as interpreters of Ohad Naharin’s movement”
