Gaga för skådespelare och musikalartister med Hillel Kogan i Göteborg

I samarbete med Kulturakademin Trappan och Högskolan för scen och musik

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years
and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company
members. The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, everchanging
power of movement.

Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga
provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility,
stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of
physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for
their elimination.

The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and
unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple
way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with
himself and others. OBS! Undervisningen sker på engelska

Ansökan görs via Kulturakademin Trappan
