Hora, Bat-Sheva Dance Company

Last Saturday we went to see Hora, a Bat-Sheva Dance Company performance, and enjoyed all 60 minutes of it. The curtain opened to a stark stage surrounded by neon green washed walls, with only one long wooden bench. A beautiful setting for a moving performance. The choreography and dance execution were immaculate. Strong movements, some almost acrobatic, were delivered with strict accuracy, sensitive to space and time. All this was enhanced by the minimalist lighting design which changed the stage with every nuance.
