Sadeh21 at Brooklyn Academy of Music
Ohad Naharin is one of the most original choreographic minds of our time—a modern guru whose pioneering dance language, Gaga, uses bodily self-awareness to produce constant, fluid motion and an unthinkable elasticity.
Rooted in this practice is Sadeh21, a collection of movement studies by Naharin and his Israeli-based Batsheva Dance Company. Eighteen dancers—backed by music by Autechre, Brian Eno, Angelo Badalamenti, and others—deploy their controlled, pliant bodies in a staggering range of abstractly interpersonal scenarios. Exchanged kisses, distant screams, and beaten chests collude with sinewy solos and gender-bent line and club dancing to create devastating constellations of human pathos, humor, and beauty.
Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
