A Batsheva Dance Company Playlist

Music plays an integral role in the work of Ohad Naharin, house choreographer for Batsheva Dance Company—but perhaps never more so surprisingly than in Venezuela, which comes to BAM Mar 27–30. We asked Kyle Scheurich, a dancer with Batsheva, to curate a playlist of music featured in past (and current) Batsheva BAM performances.

“Ohad has a unique and sensitive way of understanding how he wants to connect sound, space and time,” says Scheurich. “Whether the music is there to provide groove and meter for movement or to offer emotional support to the composition of work, each [musical] style contributes to the overall feeling of the piece. This playlist is a sort of ‘peek’ into the music that excites me and the dancers around me.”

Venezuela will be at BAM from March 27–30.
