Batsheva’s youth ensemble explores gender through a renowned Israeli choreographer’s works

Hailing from a small town in central Israel, Roy Assaf has become one of today’s most successful choreographers in modern dance. After working with top companies across the globe, he has returned to Israel to revisit two of his pieces with 16 of Batsheva’s youth ensemble dancers. The two distinctive pieces explore the theme of gender, examining gender identity, archetypes, and politics. Critics have called Girls, “full of grace but also wisdom and depth; it is frivolous and objectifying yet at the same time also censorious and saturated with grief and pain.”
