a collection of works by a mix of choreographers

Department of Dance
Choreography by Ohad Naharin, Sandra Torijano & Missy Beck

Reserved Seating $30 and $24 • Student $12 with ID

Dancing Globally celebrates global connections in dance by presenting the work of an internationally renowned choreographer and of two faculty members. Contemporary choreographer Ohad Naharin, Artistic Director of the Israeli Batsheva Dance Company (recently presented in Ann Arbor by UMS), is a leading innovator in the world of dance. His revolutionary dance movement language, Gaga, enables dancers to move unpredictably with great speed and clarity. The Department presents excerpts from Naharin’s ‘greatest hits’ including “Echad Mi Yodea” and “Mabul.” Faculty choreographer Sandra Torijano finds inspiration in the life and bestselling novel (The Island of Lonely Men) of Costa Rican writer José León Sánchez. Missy Beck’s new work plays with the idea of scale, whereby a large group of dancers moves as if one, so becomes ameba-like: it swirls, rises, falls, and morphs into sculptures and continually shifting landscapes.
