Hora – The Movie is Ohad Naharin’s second film. Just like in YAG – The Movie in 2020, Naharin once again transports choreography created for the stage through the lens of the camera, adapting it to create a new piece.
 
 The camera allows an intimate, tender and disturbing glimpse into a parallel universe. In this dark world, the dancers emerge from a black space to the timeless music of Isao Tomita, their bodies delineating a human-dance calligraphy, like a code that is constantly being written and erased. 
 
 Naharin’s cinematic lab adds a new choreographic layer to the stage work – the movement of the camera through space. Actions carried out in the editing room like acceleration or deceleration transitions and cuts, are given a central place and lead to the discovery and revelation of new creative expressions.
 
 Hora – The Movie is another opportunity to delve into the fascinating evolution of Naharin’s work in search of new ways to create and experience dance.
