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.
“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
