ContextSpeaks: Ohad Naharin
Within the educational program the VI Diana Vishneva's Context festival organises a long-awaited public talk: an open conversation about creativity, profession and new choreography with Ohad Naharin.
Ohad Naharin is one of the defining voices of contemporary dance in the world today. After starting his choreographic career in New York in 1980 he burst onto the international dance stage in the late 1980ies and firmly established himself when he was appointed Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company in 1990. His work is built with movement which is both universal yet personal. Although his dances are not meant to be political they are informed by a clear social and political conscience and awareness. His dance language is sophisticated, authentic and full of contrasts. His pieces are on the repertoire of leading companies around the world such as Opera National de Paris, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Rambert Dance Company, Finnish National Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater and Sydney Dance Company to name a few. Currently, Ohad Naharin’s approach to dance and dancing, Gaga, is taking the world by storm.
