Batsheva Dancers Create: Surrealism in Alaska

Batsheva Dance Company was founded as a repertory company in 1964 by the Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild, who enlisted Martha Graham as artistic adviser. Despite its youth, Batsheva was immediately granted the honor of being the first company outside Graham’s own troupe to perform the legendary choreographer’s dances.  Since 1989, Batsheva Dance Company has been in residence at the Suzanne Dellal Centre in Tel Aviv.   Ohad Naharin was appointed as Artistic Director in 1990.
