Gaga/Haharin is a movement language developed over the last decade by Ohad Naharin, Batsheva’s long-time artistic director, in the Batsheva studios.
This expressive and dynamic movement language is used daily by dancers of the Batsheva Dance Company and Batsheva Ensemble as the basis for their distinctive technique.
Gaga offers a new way to reach a deeper knowledge and understanding of one’s self via the body and it’s movement, efficiency and texture of movement, the use of the explosive power, the connection between pleasure and effort, quickness, clarity of intention and stamina. It enables recognition of one’s own movement habits and helps to acquire new ones.
Essentially, Gaga increases one’s understanding of the body’s weaknesses and strengths, as well as its response to them. Through Gaga, one works to break down the physical barriers in order to reach a greater comprehension and control of instinctive movements.
This workshop is for experienced dancers. Participation is free and by application.
