Gaga is the system created by Ohad Naharin and currently used as training by the Batsheva Dance Company. During the class instructions will be given and demonstrated constantly adding layers of textures and qualities. The idea is to never stop moving, and through the exploration of texture and qualities to experience form, rhythm ,sense of speed and groove.
It is a very simple yet extremely sophisticated tool of research and exploration that allows dancers, in time, shed accumulated habits in order to find a more essential and unique way of approaching dance and to reconnect it to their own passion to move.
Every day the workshop will consist in:
Gaga Intensive 10:30-13:15
One afternoon Rep Laboratory 14:00-16:00
