Three
By Ohad Naharin
Performed by The Batsheva Ensemble
Duration: 60 min

Ohad Naharin returns to “Three”, which he created for the Batsheva Dance Company in 2005 – a seminal piece that Benjamin Millepied once described as one of the most intriguing works featured in the program in all of his years as director of the Paris  Opera Ballet

Three is a triptych comprised of three sections: Bellus, Humus, and Sekus. The tripartite theological structure suggests a return to a formal, exposed, everyday foundation of dance. Virtuosity is replaced by the simple movement, by rhythm, and unison, weaving the three sections into a delicate lacework of equilibriums between the empty spaces, silence, and pauses and the body, music, and movement

Naharin’s language often corresponds with dance’s two central forces: gravity and transience, exploring what can be done with them and within them, and how they can be transformed into an experience that has no words  only sensations. In “Three”, Naharin takes on the basic “operating manual” of choreography, shifting focus to the seemingly simple framework – the number of dancers, composition, spotlights, the music. He reminds us that  the convergence of all these together in time and space, as well as their measure and volume,are in fact the lements that generate the magic of the live performance

*The show contains nudity

Three presents dance that is not afraid to be exposed and to expose, which does not apologize for its fragility, humanity, and excess.  A rare glimpse Naharin’s extensive dance research

“Whenever Mr. Naharin’s company comes to town, we have much to be thankful for; in the case of his new dance, it came three times over”. (New York Times)

“Through the vision and imagination of one of the finest choreographers of our time, we witness a rare event — fleeting, vivid.” (Benjamin Millepied)
