A workshop aiming to explore and experience the research of Gaga as a way to deepen the listening to one’s own physicality and scope of sensations. Furthermore to let this experience become a toolbox to support one’s dance within various improvisation tasks and scores of solo, partnering and group work.
The Gaga movement language originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, everchanging power of movement, developed by Batsheva Dance Company’s artistic director Ohad Naharin.
The method offers a framework for discovering and strengthening the body, for challenging our movement habits and exploring the endless possibilities in a gentle way while lightening our senses and imagination.
The work improves instinctive movement and enhances the ability to use our energy within a wide range of different textures and qualities.
Gaga offers an experience of freedom and pleasure, each one with himself together with others.
“We connect to the sense of the endlessness of possibilities. We explore multidimensional movement, we enjoy the burning sensation in our muscles, we are ready to snap, we are aware of our explosive power, and sometimes we use it. We change our movement habits by finding new ones. We go beyond our familiar limits. We become calm and alert at once.”
–Ohad Naharin
