Barak Marshall's Dynamic Dance Mongering

Dance talent is not often inherited through the generations, as we have seen with the regularly slated reconstructions of works by ballet master Michel Fokine, when recreated by his French granddaughter Isabelle. One happy exception to this rule is Los Angeles-born choreographer Barak Marshall, son of the acclaimed Yemenite Israeli dancer, choreographer and musician Margalit Oved.

In 2008 Marshall, who has been based in Israel as well as LA since 1994, created the ballet “Monger,” which was praised last year in the Forward, and will have its much-anticipated U.S. premiere at the venerable Jacob’s Pillow Festival on July 7, with repeat performances through July 11.
