If you can possibly make it tonight, run, don't walk, to get tickets for Batsheva at the Eisenhower. Last night's performance was inspirational.

You will see excellent, contemporary modern choreography; extremely strong dancers, any one of whom can hold the audience breathless; works full of comedy, drama, and eccentricities; and great music (although it is often too loud).

One of my favorites was an audience participation piece that is just brilliant.

You can see this great performance for only $19 in the balcony--perfect view.

Don't miss it!

I saw it last night and thought it was interesting but was left wishing for a whole lot more information in the program. For example, the piece with the 5 men who painted themselves would've been a lot more interesting if I'd known it was about drugs, as I heard while standing in line for the ladies' room at intermission.

The audience participation piece was remarkable.
