NIF event: Ohad Naharin on BDS, Israel-Palestine and the Sydney Festival

Over the last month, calls to boycott the Sydney Festival after it received sponsorship from the Israeli embassy for a production of Naharin’s Decadance have featured prominently on social and mainstream media. (You can read my Sydney Morning Herald op-ed discussing the issue.)

One of Israel’s most celebrated cultural identities, the conversation with Naharin canvassed his work over more than three decades at the Batsheva Dance Company, the founding of the Gaga movement, his political activism, and the ongoing debate about the Sydney Festival and the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.
