Acclaimed Contemporary Dance From Israel
Choreography by Ohad Naharin
“There’s no other company that dances quite like this.” Haaretz (Israel)
“MOMO… is breathtaking. It has clarity, precision and economy, simplicity and depth, a secret.” Globes (Israel)
Titan of contemporary dance and creator of the Gaga movement language Ohad Naharin brings his powerhouse Tel Aviv-based company back to Santa Barbara with MOMO. Laurie Anderson and Kronos Quartet’s Landfall and Philip Glass’ Metamorphosis provide the slow-simmering musical backdrop to this daring new work. MOMO has two souls, with separate yet conjoined narratives running alongside one another, hypnotic and intense. Through it all, a shared passion of deep sorrow and beauty unfolds on stage.
