The Hole

Ohad Naharin is recognized worldwide as one of the most innovative dance makers of his generation for his compelling choreographic craftsmanship and inventive vocabulary.


It was never intended that The Hole, originally created for Batsheva Dance Company, would be performed outside Tel Aviv: “When I created The Hole, I told my team to prepare for a work that would never go on tour, that it would never leave our studio (where we performed it),” says Naharin. “It's too complicated from a production point of view, I thought.


NDT proved me wrong. They accomplished what was impossible for us.” The work requires a complete transformation of the space, with a raised stage in the center, raised walls behind the audience, and even a metal grille hung from the ceiling on which dancers climb and hang. Naharin's play with different perspectives borders on the cinematic, utilizing all dimensions of space.
