Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members. The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement, and it continues to evolve today. Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others.
This year Erez Zohar offers a Gaga Workshop including a Gaga/dancers class and a class of Ohad Naharin’s Repertory. Both are open to professional dancers or advanced dance students ages 18+. The participation at Ohad Naharin’s Repertory requires the participation at the Gaga/dancers class.
Additionally a Gaga/people class is offered. This is open to all participants over 16 years old and there is no dance knowledge required. Gaga / people is also part of the "Inclusive" program of Tanz Bozen.
