The New York Times on Ohad Naharin


Choreographer and Artistic Director Ohad Naharin

Fresh from its world premiere in Tel Aviv, Ohad Naharin's latest creation Last Work brings Australia's Batsheva fans up to date with the celebrated company's most recent exploration of motion and emotion.

In Last Work, Naharin and the Batsheva dancers explore the body's motion as the most humane, stirring expression of performing arts, and synthesize the infinite spectrum of emotions and sentiment into performance. 

Be among the first in the world to immerse yourself in the newest work from one of the globe’s finest companies and choreographers.
