Echad Mi Yodea

This is a piece performed by the Young Ensemble of the BatSheva Dance Company. It is set to a great arrangement of a Traditional religious song, but the choreography is unprecedented as far as I can tell. I have watched it at least ten times and I still do not understand it. I guess it is one of those things that are transcendental and not to be understood with the intellect, but absorbed into our intangible essence. This clip is transliterated and translated into English so the subtitles take away some of the impact. Still, I thought that non-Hebrew speakers should have an idea as to what it is all about. There are some un-subtitled versions on youtube and they can easily be found under this title. Bottom line: it blows me away every time I watch it.
