Batsheva Dancers Create

Welcome to the digital platform for original creations by Batsheva dancers.
The Batsheva Dancers Create Workshops are dedicated to creating a stage for the dancers to present independent and original new works, with production and marketing resources provided by Batsheva. Several well-established choreographers in the current dance scene had their first creating experiences in the Batsheva Dancers Create Workshops.

Due to the challenges presented by COVID-19, this year 21 dancers created work specifically for digital viewing, some in collaboration with film makers. Each week, between 02/21 - 03/20, six to seven pieces will have their world premier on the website, and will stay available for free streaming throughout that same week. There will also be exclusive, one-time, live performances. Don't miss out!

The COVID-19 restrictions created unprecedented challenges, forging creative solutions, ultimately becoming an integral part of the content in these works. Each choreographer has brought themselves to the challenge and process, producing work totally unique to each individual. Varying on the wide spectrum created when film meets dance - the works are as different as the creators behind them.

The Dancers Create Project is supported by the Michael Sela Fund for the Cultivation of Young talent in Batsheva established in 2003.
