This workshop consists of:
- Lab 12:45pm-2:45pm to deepen and explore the qualities found during the Gaga class.
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.
“We become more aware of our form. We connect to the sense of the endlessness of possibilities. We explore multi-dimensional 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 can be calm and alert at once.” – Ohad Naharin
Movement research into choreography will help us to explore qualities and tasks from Gaga class into our warm bodies after a morning session. With specific guidelines of teacher we will search for possibilities to keep body full if listening during choreography session. How we can still be available to listen to travelling staff inside set material. We will learn Natalia's choreography from her recent work and as well we developed something together by using our knowledge for all sessions.
