Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout his work as a choreographer and Artistic Director of Batsheva Dance Company.
Gaga challenges multi-layer tasks. We are aware of the connection between effort and pleasure, the distance between our body parts, the friction between flesh and bones, we sense the weight of our body parts, yet our form is not shaped by gravity... we are aware of where we hold unnecessary tension, we let go only to bring life and efficient movement to where we let go . . . We are turning on the volume of listening to our body.
