Decadance #22 af Ohad Naharin

“Emotional, essential, formidable”

 British Theatre Guide

“Decadance is where we celebrate our repertoire, the playground in which we add or subtract and adapt pieces from our body of work. It is an opportunity to look at our work from different angles. More than anything, I love how Deca-dance allows the dancers to give their own interpretation, which is full of sublime moments.”

 Ohad Naharin created Decadance in 2000 to mark the tenth anniversary of his work in Batsheva Dance Company with ten excerpts from choreographies he created for the company. Since then, every season Naharin returns with the dancers to Decadance and presents new adaptations to iconic works from his repertoire as well as new pieces, meticulously curating and editing them into a captivating collage.

Decadance embodies the possibility of a piece to remain open-ended, forever becoming, never finite. This is an invitation to revisit compositions written for the body and the company’s diverse materials, to dive into them, remix them, look at them with fresh eyes, and sense ourselves in front of them time and again, but never the same.
