Keren Rosenberg

27 February - 01 March

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout his work as a choreographer and Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company. Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/dancers, which is the daily training of Batsheva Dance Company members, now taught also for other dancers in Israel and abroad, and Gaga/people, open to the public and available for anyone at any age, without the necessity of previous experience. Gaga classes are held for a growing number of people in the Suzanne Dalal Centre and at additional places in the country and abroad. 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.

About the Workshop:
1st day - exploring physical textures: in Gaga we work a lot with changing the textures of our moving bodies through thick, soft, collapsing into movement, shaking, quacking, floating as well as how this textures can influence the shape and the volume of the body in the space, speed and level of effort.
2nd day - exploring the form and the relationship of the moving body in the space: moving through form, changing and molding form, connecting to the distance of body part in the space and the shape of the space we are inside. It invites great awareness to the moving bodies and sensitivity and listening to the happening in the room.
3rd day - changing stories: developing the availability to snap and change the physicality/ state of being and form in matter of seconds. A lot of the beauty and fascination i find in gaga is the use of fantasy and imagination to actually change who we are at any given moment, whether it comes from an internal decision, urge, other forces that are being applied (something is happening to you) or the mere decision of becoming something else.
