Twisting Body And Mind

Gia Kourlas, New York Times, August 12, 2011
GAGA is not just a lady.
Long before the pop star came on the scene, Gaga was a movement language developed by the Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. Lady Gaga named herself after a Queen song, but Mr. Naharin, whose dances conjure a soulful blur of humor, sensuality and grit, chose the word for its playfulness.

Gaga From the Source

Siobhan Burke, Dance Magazine, October 12, 2010
As I waited for Ohad Naharin’s workshop to begin at Peridance last Thursday, I wondered how the master would make his entrance. There was something vaguely religious—devotional—about the scene: Eighty students gathered in one room, anticipating the arrival of a single teacher.

Play it Cool, Girl, Real Cool: Gaga Class with Ohad Naharin and Danielle Agami

Laura Diffenderfer, Joyce Theater Blog, October 8, 2010
The class I took, part of The Joyce’s Master Class series, was specifically for dancers but I could see how individuals of varying abilities and dance experiences could benefit from the exercises.

Going Gaga in Israel, Part Two

Evan Namerow, Dancing Perfectly Free, November 27, 2009
In Gaga, I realized that I was moving in a way that was entirely different – more honest and open, more connected to sensations – from how I would move if I were told to improvise in a non-Gaga environment.

Going Gaga in Israel, Part One

Evan Namerow, Dancing Perfectly Free, November 24, 2009
Since first experiencing Gaga – the movement language created by Batsheva Dance Company’s artistic director Ohad Naharin – in early 2008, I have been yearning for more, and so has most of the dance world.

Going Gaga and being groovy

Jessica Green, Dance Consortium, August 12, 2009
Gaga has definitely influenced the way I think about dancing and the experience of the body. I found there is a freedom to move the way you want, and yet not to neglect your technique.

Reflections on the Gaga Intensive 2009

Deborah Friedes Galili, Dance In Israel, August 6, 2009
I talked to many of the dancers about why they came to the workshop, what they enjoyed most, and what they got out of the experience.

Learning to Speak Gaga

Deborah Friedes Galili, Jerusalem Post, July 30, 2009
The two-week Gaga Intensive, which took place from July 19-31, provided a unique opportunity for both Israeli and foreign dancers to study Naharin’s innovative approach and learn excerpts from his captivating choreography.

Never underestimate what ordinary people, untrained in dance, can accomplish.

Float, shake, melt, quake: Gaga is sparking sensations and imaginations worldwide

Erika Eichelberger, Dance Magazine, January 2009
Gaga is the nonsense word that struck choreographer Ohad Naharin five years ago, when he decided to name the improvisational practice he had been developing with Batsheva Dance Company.

Gaga class in Tel Aviv

Rebecca Crystal, Art in Motion, January 13, 2009
As we shook, suspended, connected, floated, pushed through exhaustion, and danced, the idea of resiliency, strength in perseverance, and harnessing positive energy resonated deeply with me.

Gaga: A Foreigner Explores Ohad Naharin’s Movement Language

Deborah Friedes Galili, Dance In Israel, January 3, 2009
If the verbal cues in Gaga are indeed suggestions rather than the hard-and-fast rules which govern many dance techniques, they are at times picked up by my body and mind with neither resistance nor with a concerted effort to follow them.

Going Gaga: My Intro to Gaga Dance Classes

Deborah Friedes Galili, Dance In Israel, November 25, 2008
A year after beginning my study of Gaga, the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin, it seems hard to believe that I once lived without it.

Going Gaga for Gaga

Evan Namerow, Dancing Perfectly Free, March 2, 2008
The best way to understand Gaga is to experience it – that is, to take a class. And if that’s not possible, then it’s helpful to attend a performance of Batsheva to understand what Naharin’s movement is like.
