Decadance

Date: 18 Nov 2021

This is the party that never stops.

Since its creation in 2000, theatres and festivals all over the world have played host to Decadance, the iconic celebratory remix of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin’s works for Batsheva Dance Company. Now Sydney gets to put its own spin on a modern classic.

Brimming with humour and sadness, obsessed with tribal and individual expression, sparkling with stunning physical refinement and hilarious vulgarity, Decadance is contemporary dance that speaks to everyone.

Made from 16 sections of the visionary Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin’s works for Tel Aviv’s Batsheva Dance Company rearranged into a coherent whole, Decadance is much more than the sum of its parts, much more than a “Greatest Hits”.

Moving to an eclectic soundtrack ranging from Dick Dale to John Zorn, Goldfrapp to The Beach Boys, 17 of Australia’s finest dancers will take a virtuosic dive into Ohad’s world, bringing fresh life and perspectives to a work that is constantly evolving as part of the repertory of major dance companies worldwide.

Since its creation in 2000, theatres and festivals all over the world have played host to Decadance. Now it’s Sydney’s turn.
