Batsheva Ensemble is the younger branch of Israel's world-renowned contemporary dance group, Batsheva Dance Company. Led by artistic director Ohad Naharin, they have been described as "acrobats of God" (San Francisco Chronicle) who "dance like demons" (New York Times).
The Ensemble's members are selected annually by Naharin from a pool of around 300 dancers, many of whom are recent graduates from the most prestigious dance schools in the world, from Juilliard to the Paris Conservatory. Batsheva Ensemble are proud to be independent from Batsheva Dance Company, presenting dynamic and technically superb performances in their own right.
For their first appearance in the UK, they will perform Deca Dance, a work which brings together the most memorable and best-loved segments ofNaharinÂ?s creations from the last 20 years. Set to an eclectic mix of music from Vivaldi to the Beach Boys, the piece is constantly updated and so offers a fresh look at the work created by Batsheva every time it is performed.
