This Weekend: Batsheva Dance Company at UCLA Live

Founded in 1964 with the personal assistance of Martha Graham, Batsheva has evolved into one of the most influential and consistently fresh and exciting dance companies on the planet, and one of Israel’s leading cultural ambassadors.

Last seen at UCLA Live in 2006, the company, under the visionary direction of Israeli dancer/choreographer Ohad Naharin, has earned an international reputation for pushing the boundaries of dance with intense energy, rich sensuality and a culturally diverse dance language.

Its repertoire comprises works by dance’s leading innovators, including Naharin, whose latest creation Max was described by The Jerusalem Post as “an evening to remember.” Performed by 10 dancers to original music by Maxim Waratt (a name Naharin assumed for himself), Max is noted for its striking gestural language and its deconstruction of identity.
