This workshop is a repertoire and technique series inspired by the Gaga movement philosophy of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. We will begin with an hour Shaga class as we learn to approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul.
The second hour of the workshop offers an intimate and deep exploration of the movement language though the creative process and choreography. We will develop movement phrases to experience the inhabitant and delicacy of form while generating choreographic compositions. The five-week series will conclude with an informal sharing. This workshop is for individuals who wish to open themselves to movement in new ways. Dancers, yogis, and movers of all kinds and abilities are invited to participate. No prior experience necessary.
