Ohad Naharin (Choreography)

Ohad Naharin (born 1952) is an Israeli contemporary dancer, choreographer and dance company artistic director

Ohad Naharin was born in 1952 in Kibbutz Mizra. Raised in an artistic home, he wrote stories, composed music, and painted as a child. His father was a doctor in psychology, previously an actor, and his mother was a dance teacher. Nevertheless, Naharin did not start dancing until age 22. During his first year with the Batsheva Dance Company, Martha Graham visited Israel and invited Naharin to join her dance company in New York. He attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet.

After seeing Dmitry Bryantsev's "Illusive Ball", the new director of the Music Theatre's ballet company, Laurent Hilaire, said that this production had absolutely to return into the repertory. His decision was unanimously supported by the artists. In this work, Dmitry Bryantsev admiringly pays homage to Romantic ballet. This is the style of Taglioni, seen through the lense of Fokine's stylisation and breathing the spirit of modernity.

"Lonesome George" was named after the giant tortoise who died on the Galápagos Islands in 2012, aged 100. "Loneliness is the principal tragedy of humanity, it can be realised and lived through in expressive dance. I feel that the body is a jail: the inability to transcend our bodies is the starting point where despair in my moves begins", says Marco Goecke about his work.

The sound track for "Minus 16" consists of a wide range of musical compositions from mambo and techno to traditional music from Israel. In his work Ohad Naharin uses dance improvisation and "Gaga", the choreographic language that made him famous.
