Enter the world of Ohad Naharin, the internationally acclaimed choreographer and artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company, and creator of a radical new movement language known as Gaga, which has been hugely influential in Israel and around the world. Eight years in the making, this high-energy documentary immerses the audience in the creative process behind Batsheva’s explosive performances. Using intimate rehearsal footage, extensive unseen archival materials, and stunning dance sequences, acclaimed director Tomer Heymann (Paper Dolls) tells the fascinating story of an artistic genius who has redefined the language of modern dance.
“Mr. Naharin, 64 […] creates slippery, enigmatic dances that flicker between strident assertions of bold physicality and buttery fluidity.” (New York Times)
