“Ohad Naharin … is a spellbinder, a choreographer who pushes his dancers to the point of exhaustion and into the neighborhood of sublimity.” ~San Francisco Chronicle

Israel’s foremost contemporary dance company, revered worldwide for its cutting-edge work, visits Boulder for the first time. Artistic Director Ohad Naharin’s transfixing piece “Venezuela” brings together rap, Gregorian chant, Argentine tango and the choreographer’s signature Gaga language research.
