Herd Of Bulls

Choreographer Saar Harari trained as a dancer in Israel until the age of 18 when he began his compulsory military service with the Israeli Defense Forces, eventually becoming a commanding officer of a special combat unit. Upon returning to civilian life he resumed his career as a dancer and put his military experience behind him, until now. Herd of Bulls uses the movement vocabulary of the military to inform this intense, muscular and visceral performance. On a bare stage with minimal sound, four dancers physicalize the internal struggle between love and violence of a soldier during conflict. Harari’s powerful, original choreography takes the audience on a journey through violence – the stillness, concentration, weariness, sadness, energy and the silence that comes after.

“The choreographer Saar Harari draws on his service with the Israeli Defense Forces for this new mixed-gender quartet. Despite the title, the movement is more a delicate martial-arts demonstration than a boot-camp drill or a military stampede. Its exploration of animal instinct ranges past the violent and murderous impulses of the body to the sensual and seductive.” As seen in THE NEW YORKER

“The modern-dance choreographer SAAR HARARI has drawn on physical instincts honed during his years as a commanding officer of a special combat unit of the Israeli army to create “Herd of Bulls,” a world premiere that opens on Tuesday at 8 p.m. for a one-week run at PS122.” As seen in The New York Times
