Gaga

Kurs with Kasia Kizior, Tanja Saban

Gaga ist eine Bewegungssprache, die Ohad Naharin, künstlerischer Leiter der Batsheva Dance Company in Israel, entwickelte. Gaga nutzt die heilende, verändernde Kraft der Bewegung und führt die Gruppe durch das konstante Hinhören auf physische Empfindungen (sensations) durch verschiedene Aufgaben. Gaga fördert Flexibilität und Ausdauer, regt Wahrnehmung und Vorstellungskraft an und bereichert die Bewegungsqualität auf einfache Art und Weise.
