In Venezuela, Naharin and the dancers explore the dialogue and conflict between movement and the content it represents. Naharin created Venezuela in two 40-minute sections placed in juxtaposition. In this multi-faceted and compelling work, the endless possibilities of a choreographer’s craft are at play, and in turn, Venezuela compels the audience to challenge their own freedom of choice.
This performance uses songs containing lyrics with adult language.
