Join our event with Israel Prize winning choreographer and contemporary dancer Ohad Naharin.

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.

One of Israel’s most celebrated cultural identities, our conversation with Naharin will canvas 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.

If you have a question you’d like raised during the discussion with Naharin, you can fill in this form.
