Batsheva, The Young Ensemble – Decadance – New York

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.

Batsheva Ensemble – Deca Dance – London

Naharin is at his best when working with groups, particularly mixed groups or groups of men. There isn’t much that is gender specific in the work; women dance much the same steps as men and there is little male / female partnering. What there is looks oddly perfunctory.
