Barak Marshall

barak marshall2Born and raised in Los Angeles, USA, Barak Marshall is the son of the dancer, choreographer and musician Margalit Oved. He became involved in dance quite by chance in 1995 and, since then, Barak has quickly made his mark as one of the principal Israeli choreographers. His work draws its sources from the dynamism, physicality and energy of Israel while looking back at the colourful traditions and ancient rituals on which its unique contemporary society is founded.
In 1998 Barak Marshall received the First Prize and the Author's Prize at the prestigious Bagnolet International choreographic competition of Bagnolet as well as the Bonnie Byrd Prize for New Choreography and the National Prize of the ADAMI
Barak Marshal has created several pieces for the Batsheva ensemble, the Philadanco Dance Company, the MDT Dance Company and the ABCD Dance Company. He has been the resident choreographer at the American Dance Festival in 1998 and 1999 and has been asked to create two new pieces for the Israel Festival.
In 1999 Ohad Naharin invited Barak Marshall to become the resident choreographer for the Batsheva Dance Company.
Barak is also a singer of oriental and classical music. He has performed as a soloist with Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Project. This year his work was awarded first prize at the Joyce Foundation A.W.A.R.D. Show which took place in Los Angeles. He has received a grant for his next production with Margarlit Oved and Tamir Muskat of the Balkan Beat Box.
