Founded in Tel-Aviv in 1964, the Batsheva Dance Company was headed from 1990 to 2018 by Ohad Naharin. Through his “Gaga” technique, a choreographic vocabulary that explores the sensations and the availability of the bodies, he made his mark on the dance world and offered the company its finest hours.

The collection ‘‘The Art of Ohad Naharin’’ is a series of DVD & Blu-ray that showcase Naharin’s aesthetics and demanding technique : this new release presents Sadeh21, created in 2011 in collaboration with the dancers, and interpreted by the ‘‘junior’’ branch of Batsheva: The Young Ensemble.

Transmission is a fundamental element of Naharin’s philosophy. It is not surprising that Batsheva - The Young Ensemble was created the same year that the choreographer took over the Israeli company, on the contrary, it shows the choreographer’s desire to nurture young dancers and help them develop their creative process, but also to deepen his own choreographic language by getting an outside look on his own work.

This is what happens with Sadeh21. This ‘‘choreographic odyssee’’, this ‘‘epic-dance expedition’’, with its strong contrasting effects and its bare simplicity, presents the essence of movement, stripped of all tricks or devices, and thus underscores the extraordinary emotional powers of dance. Rejuvenated by a new generation of interprets from all over the world, the choreography becomes incandescent and resembles an explosion of sensuality, radiant, dangerous and exciting.
