March offers a highlight of Danse Danse’s 2011-2012 season with the return of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company, one of the most exciting contemporary dance troupes on the international scene. The company will perform Hora, a recent piece by artistic director and world-renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin, who is known for his innovative and textured vocabulary of movement. Hailed by the Jerusalem Post as a “sheer marvel at the diversity and beauty embedded in the human body,” Hora showcases eleven dancers against a unique backdrop of music arranged and performed by electronic composer Isao Tomito, including striking synthesized adaptations of Debussy, Mussorgsky and Richard Strauss. Hora runs from March 1-3 at the Théâtre Maisonneuve.
