Gaga technique with Adi Salant

Developed by Ohad Naharin over the course of many years, Gaga is a movement language applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members. Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement. Gaga/dancers is open to professional dancers and dance students, offering them the opportunity to taste training methods of Batsheva Dance Company. Gaga/people is open to the general public and available for anyone at any age, without the necessity of previous experience.

“Gaga challenges multi-layer tasks. We are aware of the connection between effort and pleasure, we are aware of the distance between our body parts, we are aware of 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, we appreciate small gestures, we are measuring and playing with the texture of our flesh and skin, we might be silly, we can laugh at ourselves. We connect to the sense of “plenty of time,” especially when we move fast, we learn to love our sweat, we discover our passion to move and connect it to effort, we discover both the animal we are and the power of our imagination. We are “body builders with a soft spine.”
