Gaga is the movement language that was developed by the Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin throughout many years, parallel to his work as a choreographer and the artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company.
Teachers guide the participants using a series of instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions with their own interpretation. We welcome movement from the origin of listening to our bodies, and we explore different qualities such as soft, thick, speed and plenty of time to mention some of them.
The classes offer a creative framework to experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere without mirrors and in comfortable clothes.
Creative research session
The session will bridge the toolbox of Gaga into a more creative framework or dance improvisation. The participants will be a more active part of this session by creating their own movement material.
We add playfulness with skill and the curiosity for the research.
