Presented in Greece exclusively in association with Megaron, the Athens Concert Hall.
In Ohad Naharin’s YAG, Batsheva’s first production adapted especially for the screen, Naharin uses cinematic language to communicate his work both as director and choreographer. The disappearance of the stage, now replaced by the cinematic frame, creates a direct encounter with the dancers. Video artist Roee Shalti, who regularly films Batsheva, filmed and edited the piece with Naharin. The bare space, using the same lighting throughout, is the setting for refined movement. YAG was filmed during October 2020 at Batsheva’s Varda Studio, Suzanne Dellal Center, Tel Aviv.
Performed by: Yael Ben Ezer, Sean Howe, Londiwe Khoza, Igor Ptashenchuk, Yoni (Yonatan) Simon, Hani Sirkis
Music: John Zorn, Gaetano Donizetti, John Taverner, Ennio Morricone, Ran Slavin
The piece contains nudity.
