About the pieces:


Last Work


The piece is breathtaking for the extraordinary dancing by the Batsheva dancers, and the way Mr. Naharin can evoke states of pleasure, pain, madness and a kind of animality ? a sheer state of being in the body ? through his movement (?).

(Roslyn Sulcas, New York Times)


Last Work ….again shows Batsheva Dance Company to be one of the most captivating  ensembles in the world. It reads in many ways like a dance dystopia, populated by spindly  dancers who move like humanoids, combining extreme articulation with a grounded, unerring  sense of weight.

(Laura Capelle ,UK Financial Times)
