About Batsheva Dance Company and Ohad Naharin

Founded as a repertory company in 1964 by the Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild, who enlisted Martha Graham as its first artistic adviser, Batsheva Dance Company appointed Ohad Naharin as Artistic Director in 1990, which propelled the company into a new era with his adventurous curatorial vision and distinctive choreographic voice. The company now maintains an extensive performance schedule in Israel and internationally with over 250 performances and over 75,000 spectators per year. The award winning Naharin is also the originator of the innovative movement language, gaga, which has enriched his extraordinary movement invention, revolutionised the company's training, and emerged as a growing international force in the larger field of movement practices for both dancers and non-dancers. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening the body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination.
