Batsheva – The Young Ensemble performs Ohad Naharin's Bessie Award-winning dance, Naharin's Virus, inspired by the great Austrian writer Peter Handke's play, Offending the Audience. Originally created in collaboration with Batsheva dancers, the work employs Naharin’s coolly seductive aesthetic to explore the boundaries of language.

The “superhumanly spry” (The New York Times) movers of Batsheva – The Young Ensemble will perform the award-winning Naharin’s Virus in the Ted Shawn Theatre. Embraced as part of one of the most prominent contemporary dance companies in the world, the company boasts an internationally diverse roster of dancers from Israel and beyond.

Adapted from the anti-play Offending the Audience by Austrian playwright Peter Handke and enriched by Ohad Naharin’s innovative, wide-reaching movement language Gaga, Naharin’s Virus is described as being “as powerful as the eye of the storm” (The Jerusalem Post).
