I just got back from enjoying a performance by the Batsheva Dance Company. What a beautiful experience!
I know absolutely *nothing* about contemporary dance and was sitting there with eyes wide open. I was intrigued. I was surprised. I was thrown off. So many feels. The above video is by the same ensemble but not what they performed tonight. If you have a chance to see them, please do.
This is beautiful.
