UMS presents the North American premiere of Last Work, a new evening-length piece by Ohad Naharin performed by 18 dancers from one of the world’s preeminent dance companies. With its shifts from sustained, meditative movement to frenzied bursts of energy, this exploration of human motion — and emotion — generates powerful images that will not soon be forgotten. Naharin’s innovative movement language, Gaga, has has emerged as a growing international force in the larger field of movement practices for both dancers and non-dancers alike.
