Naharin did it tough - from early days growing up on a kibbutz , to military service ( in the entertainment unit ) and then to a fledgling career as a dancer with the famous dancers , Martha Graham and Maurice Bejart. After being injured he was told he would never dance again but defied the odds to take over Batsheva dance company and make it an international success. The story is personal and moving, its political - he became a national hero after a controversy against the religious orthodoxy, and is also very contemporary - his mass classes of his GAGA training are attended by people from all walks of life - not just dancers.
