Leesaar performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
Founded in Tel Aviv by Lee Sher and Saar Harari in 2000 and now based in NYC, Leesaar is “a gutsy, brainy modern-dance troupe” (NY Times) with a highly theatrical approach. They’ll present a program that includes Grass and Jackals, a work that “transforms the dancers—seven women, clad in gleaming black bodysuits—into exotic, fluidly moving creatures, sexual and fierce,” (New Yorker) along with a duet by their mentor, the great Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin, performed by dancers from Batsheva Dance Company.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
