“A marvellous evening where each dancer’s personality and qualities are brought out by a choreographer who… is able to move seamlessly from wild expressionism to pure abstraction.” Sonia Schoonejans, Ballet 2000, Paris

NAC Presentation

A leading light of contemporary dance, Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is a dance alchemist, drawing on seven previous works to meticulously craft a touching homage to dance and dancers.

Minus One invites the artfully versatile dancers of GBCM – renowned for their work in contemporary ballet – to abandon themselves joyously to the dance, becoming both interpreters and inventors of movement. To a propulsive soundtrack, they reveal their individual idiosyncrasies in solo and large scale pieces where gestures are by turn contemplative, perfectly synchronized, full of grace, agility and humour.
