Along with jazz musicians, modern dance troupes have become one of Israel’s main cultural exports. Choreographer and dancer Roy Assaf — “one of the major emerging choreographic voices on our dance stages,” according to the Jerusalem Post — and his troupe make their New York debut at Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) with a double bill featuring Assaf’s “Six Years Later” and “The Hill.” A bracing duet, “Six Years” was hailed for its “beauty, nuances, and intricate, astute movements” (Jerusalem Post); the forceful all-male trio piece “The Hill” was inspired by a battle that took place in Jerusalem during the Six-Day War. The similarly titled famous Hebrew folk-ballad, “Givat Hatchmoshet” (The Ammunition Hill), serves as both music and narration for this piece.

There will be two performances, the first on Thursday, Oct. 8, the second on Friday, Oct. 13, both at 7:30 p.m.
