About The Event

Kawasaki Studio

Open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.​​ All you need is curiosity!

Gaga - Ohad Naharin's Movement language גאגא -שפת התנועה של.... 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.

Toolbox is a special session to experiment with endless possibilities using tools not rules. The Theorists share keys for unlocking our movement practice inside multi-disciplinary collaborations. We experiment with impossible tasks with optimism. We deconstruct our capacity for complexities to re-choreograph ourselves. We continuously push our limits, listen to the body, and ask “How is our dance relevant as artist citizens?”

Wear comfortable clothes. Be ready to dance barefoot or in socks. Bring a bottle of water and a towel.

Presented in partnership with Velocity Dance Center.
