Dancing is a healthy way to physically connect to someone, preferable to giving them a painful bearhug or sewing your head onto their body. Witness cheek-to-cheek contact with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the Batsheva Dance Company at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University. For $15, you get one ticket for reserved seating in the first balcony (up to a $39.45 value, including all fees). Choose between the following performances:

  • Saturday, March 17, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 18, at 2 p.m.<p>

Within the giantess’s gilded jewel box that is the Auditorium Theatre, the skilled steppers of the Tel Aviv–based Batsheva Dance Company perform two original routines created by artistic director and choreographer Ohad Naharin. Shaped by a movement language—called Gaga—of Naharin’s own making, the pieces meld contemporary-dance movements with free-flowing gestures to create an experience that mesmerizes and startles by turns, much like a hypnotist with a third eye. To the minimalistic, percussive score of Max, casually costumed performers move mechanically in patterns that shrink and expand according to their own emotional logic. Bolero’s paired interactions unfold to an electronic reinterpretation of Ravel’s classic score. Pastoral murals, vaulted ceilings, and fields of saffron velour outfit one of Chicago’s most opulent performance halls, fully restored after a period of midcentury neglect caused by environmentally hazardous levels of grandeur.
