PLEASE NOTE THE DATE OF THIS PERFORMANCE HAS CHANGED

Classic, modern, and contemporary dance forms come together with awe-inspiring synergy as Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company brings their vibrant piece, Max, to the Bass Concert Hall stage. Founded in 1964 by Martha Graham and Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild, the troupe is now one of the most inspirational and sought-after dance companies in the world. Through their revolutionary movement language, Gaga, Batsheva’s dancers continually push artistic boundaries, creating new movement possibilities and awakening dynamic sensitivity.

An original work by Batsheva artistic director Ohad Naharin, Max is a journey into the human spirit, a primal expression of pain and happiness, the solitude of the individual, the essence of the couple, the essence of a team, and of society as a whole.
