Welcome to a workshop in Gaga and Improvisation.

A deep dive into Gaga's movement language and to further explore how we with the help of the method's different tools and qualities can find greater breadth and accessibility in our physical expression in dance. Both from an exploratory and from a performative perspective. We will work individually, but also in communication with others, through various group improvisations and 'scores'. An opportunity to examine, reflect and express oneself through the body and dance. No previous knowledge of dance is required.

Gaga stems from the idea of ​​the movement's dynamic, healing and ever-changing power, developed by the Israeli Batsheva Dance Company's artistic director Ohad Naharin. The method gives us the opportunity to explore and discover the body's endless possibilities of movement and challenge our habits while we come in contact with our senses and inner fantasies. Gaga opens up for listening to the body's own abilities, and exploring within a wide range of different textures, qualities and movements.
