  • Kamuyot by Ohad Naharin
    Performed by The Batsheva Ensemble
  • DurationDuration: approx. 50 min. without intermission

"At certain moments, the dancers sit on The benches together with the spectators. At other moments, they are Leaping in, into the arena. There are moments when Traffic stops... there are moments of explosion" (Noa Limone, Haaretz)

Kamuyot touches on the mischievous, free, and playful places in all kids – whether they are 5 or 80 years old.

At the heart of the show stands a simple invitation – to dance. Breaking away from the traditional theatre hall, the show also liberates the audience. A hand’s reach from the dancers, over 50 minutes with no clear boundaries, connections are weaved between the dancers and the audience, formulating a language that seems like it has always been there.

An inspiring and moving experience that allows the audience “to be with” dance and not only watch it.

Created for Batsheva Dance Company inspired by Ohad Naharin’s “Mamootot” and “Moshe”
