Dance until you sink. Bitter Sweet Dance presents a contemporary remake of Ohad Naharin’s memorable dance production The Sinking of The Titanic (1989) inspired by the obstinate group of musicians that played on while the iconic cruise ship sank into the ocean. Liat Waysbort saw the performance as a teenager and the piece made a lasting impression on her. Later she became a dancer with Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company. In Waysbort’s version, the dancers are surprised by disaster, but do not go down without a fight. They radically embrace all available choices and possibilities to influence the outcome of their dire situation. Powerful and explosive, fragile and tranquil, they take you along in their militancy, fear of death, acceptance, and solidarity.
