di Ohad Naharin / Batsheva Dance Co.

€ 5 posto unico numerato

In YAG di Ohad Naharin, la prima produzione di Batsheva adattata appositamente per lo schermo, Naharin usa il linguaggio cinematografico per comunicare il suo lavoro sia come regista che come coreografo. La scomparsa del palcoscenico, ora sostituito dall'inquadratura cinematografica, crea un incontro diretto con i danzatori. Il video artista Roee Shalti, che filma regolarmente Batsheva, ha filmato e montato il pezzo con Naharin. Lo spazio spoglio, utilizzando la stessa illuminazione in tutto, è l'impostazione per il movimento raffinato. YAG è stato girato nell'ottobre 2020 al Varda Studio di Batsheva, Suzanne Dellal Center, Tel Aviv.
"Amore per la danza, desiderio, trasformazione delle emozioni in puro movimento, ballerini che infondono contenuti che non ho scritto, raffinatezza ed esagerazione, famiglia, tatto, consistenza, flusso, risate di se stessi, morte, tempo, corpo, passione, immaginazione, biscotti della fortuna , nudità, Hamutz-Hamutz, rosso, groove, controllo, piacere, rinuncia." (Ohad Naharin)



In Ohad Naharin's YAG, Batsheva's first production adapted especially for the screen, Naharin uses cinematic language to communicate his work both as director and choreographer. The disappearance of the stage, now replaced by the cinematic frame, creates a direct encounter with the dancers. Video artist Roee Shalti, who regularly films Batsheva, filmed and edited the piece with Naharin. The bare space, using the same lighting throughout, is the setting for refined movement. YAG was filmed during October 2020 at Batsheva's Varda Studio, Suzanne Dellal Center, Tel Aviv.
"Love of dancing, longing, transformation of emotions into pure movement, dancers infusing content I have not written, refinement and exaggeration, family, touch, texture, flow, laughter at oneself, death, time, body, passion, imagination, fortune cookies, nudity, Hamutz-Hamutz, red, groove, control, pleasure, giving up." (Ohad Naharin)
