Ohad Naharin’s Passomezzo

Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin, director of Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company, set his duet Passomezzo (1989) on the Koresh Dance Company for performances during the company’s 2009–10 season. Naharin also taught a series of master classes in “Gaga,” his signature dance technique, for the Philadelphia community. This is the first time Gaga had been taught in Philadelphia, offering the local dance community a rare opportunity to experience the technique as taught by its founder. Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter proclaimed the opening night “Ohad Naharin Day” in honor of the renowned choreographer’s work with Koresh Dance Company.
