The wonderful program of young artists that was presented at the Batsheva Dance Company’s Studio Varda on August 18 was surprising in the freshness and talent of the artists who do as they please based on solid technique and choreographic knowledge. The space is a roomy studio with no props, with uniform lighting from the side throughout all the dances. Yet the dancers are close enough to touch. What else could be needed when there are talented artists and good dancers?

For this evening one could find a topical common denominator related to magic, spirits and rituals. Everything shone forth from the professionalism of the dancers, while from the actual materials the humor emerged and glittered. And that is what was so terrific.
