GAGA method

  • GAGA method
  • Gaga is a movement language developed by Ohad Naharin over the years and which is practiced and exercised daily by the members of the Batsheva Dance Company.
    The GAGA language comes from the belief that movement is healing, dynamic and constantly evolving and continues to evolve today.
  • Gaga is a method that helps to gain knowledge and awareness of the body. It improves flexibility, physical condition and agility while awakening the senses and imagination.
  • Gaga proposes to reinforce physical fragility and to discover new ways to reduce weaknesses and possible pain. This work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movements. It gives access to an experience of freedom and pleasure dressed comfortably to dance, in a pleasant place, accompanied by music, each with himself and others.

The Gaga has two types of courses: The Gaga/People and the Gaga/Dancers..

  • The Gaga/people is open to the public and accessible to anyone, from the age of 14, without the need for previous experience.
  • Gaga/people classes last one hour and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. The teachers guide the participants using a series of evolving instructions. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant should actively explore these instructions by discovering how to interpret them and accomplish the proposed task.
  • Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework that allows you to connect with your body and imagination, increase physical awareness, improve flexibility, physical condition and experience the pleasure in movement in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
  • Gaga/dancers courses are open to dance professionals and students 16 years of age and older. These courses last one and a quarter hours and are built on the same principle as the Gaga/people courses but they make more use of the knowledge dancers have, namely a specific vocabulary and particular body skills.

The “repertoire” classes

  • The “repertoire” classes offer the opportunity to learn excerpts from Ohad Naharin’s choreographic works. The GAGA dancers classes are complementary with the “repertoire” class.

We become more aware of our movement. We connect to the meaning of infinite possibilities. “We explore multidimensional movement” – Ohad Naharin
