Naharin is the subject of the highly regarded Mr. Gaga documentary that recently had its Canadian premiere at Hot Docs and won the Audience Award: documentary spotlight at SXSW this past March.

The Company was founded as a repertory company in l964 by Baroness Batsheva de Rothschild She brought in the famed modern dancer and pioneer of contemporary dance, Martha Graham from New York as artistic adviser.
