Batsheva Dance Company at the Auditorium Theatre
Here’s hoping that Israel’s contemporary company keeps the biennial Chicago visits coming.
Welcome back Although absent from Chicago stages for more than three decades, Israel’s Batsheva Dance Company presented two shows here in 2009 that were damn near worth the wait. Still, we prefer the schedule set by this weekend’s return visit. Ohad Naharin’s 2008 duet B/olero, to Maurice Ravel via ’70s synth wizard Isao Tomita, nears obscene in the exorbitance of its choreographic invention. Max, for ten dancers, is the feature presentation.
