Preperformance Talk with John Giffin at 7 PM

"Exceptionally inventive, thrilling dance."—New York Times

Israel's leading contemporary dance company return with their latest work, Three, choreographed by visionary artistic director Ohad Naharin. The brilliant evening-length work, divided into three sections, juxtaposes stylized, synchronized movement with languid, liquid beauty and explosive crisscrossing patterns of pure visual pleasure. Lifted by a sonic collage score that ranges from Bach’s Goldberg Variations (in Glenn Gould’s famed interpretation) to Brian Eno’s ambient tidal pull, Batsheva’s remarkable dancers will impress you with their undeniable technical skills and abundant spirit. You’ll delight in Three’s vibrant display of modern dance mastery, which the San Francisco Chronicle lauded for its "virtuosity, off-center elegance and physical daring…the dancers’ understated splendor made it impossible to look away."
