Upcoming Events

This is a heads up about two exciting events in Brooklyn and Manhattan (both of which I’ll be attending): Batsheva Dance Company, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, will be performing a three-part work called Three at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) this Thursday through Saturday. Batsheva’s director and choreographer, Ohad Naharin, creates beautifully kinetic and fluid movement. I saw Batsheva at the 2006 Lincoln Center Festival and they blew me away, so I’m pretty excited about this. You can read more about it and purchase tickets here.

On Monday night (November 19th), The Idan Raichel Project will be performing at Irving Plaza. This amazing group, led by Idan Raichel, blends Ethiopian and Middle Eastern sounds to create songs that focus on peace, love and tolerance. The group has gained worldwide popularity in a relatively short amount of time (since 2002), and I’m sure they’ll continue to attract fans. Although I’ve been listening to Idan for several years and have even danced to their music with my college Israeli dance group, I’ve never seen them live. Needless to say, I’m looking forward to it. Ticket information can be found here.  Look for a review of one or both of these events sometime next week.
