Catalyst brings unique and compelling dance works by nationally renowned choreographers to the stage. A highlight of the concert includes Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin’s (Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company) sharp and humorous Minus 16. Breaking down barriers between performers and audience, Minus 16 captivates with dynamic movement and music, including traditional Israeli music, mambo, techno and Dean Martin.
Other work in Catalyst includes the world premiere of David Justin’s Oblivion's Ink, a contemporary ballet created to the music of Jazz trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas. Yacov' Sharir's Too & For explores corporeality in the physical realm as well as the virtual domain. And, Charles O. Anderson’s Rite, inspired by the writings of the late American science fiction writer Octavia Butler, captures the shifting social, economic and ecological climates of the 21st century.
