“Possibly the most exciting documentary for fans of edgier modern dance since Pina.”—Variety
Batsheva Dance Company Artistic Director Ohad Naharin is regarded as one of the world’s most important choreographers (and indeed Batsheva’s performances at the Wex have been firm audience favorites). Finding him at a turning point in his personal life, this spirited and insightful documentary reveals Naharin’s extraordinary vision through intimate rehearsal footage, unseen archival documents, and breathtaking dance sequences. (100 mins., DCP)
