Gaga/People Weekend Special - Thibaut Eiferman

Gaga is the movement research developed by Ohad Naharin in Israel. Gaga classes are predicated on a deep listening to the body and to physical sensations. The instructions are deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, and rather than turning from one prompt to another, information is layered, building into a multisensory, physically challenging experience. While many instructions are imbued with rich imagery, the research of Gaga is fundamentally physical, insisting on a specific process of embodiment. Inside this shared research, the improvisational nature of the exploration enables each participant’s deeply personal connection with Gaga.

Thibaut Eiferman is a choreographer and dancer living and working in Paris. He was classically trained at the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School of the American Ballet Theater in New York City. He then joined Ballet BC in Vancouver, Canada and toured nationally and internationally, performing works by acclaimed choreographers. In 2014 he relocated to Los Angeles to join Ate9 Dance Company under the direction of Danielle Agami, with whom he developed his understanding of Gaga, Ohad Naharin’s movement research. During three years he embarked on an eclectic artistic journey, leading him from local art galleries to the Hollywood Bowl. Invited to join the Batsheva Ensemble in Israel in 2017, he moved to Israel to perform Naharin’s most renowned works locally and abroad. In Tel Aviv he initiated his first choreographic project "H H H". Since its premiere, "H H H" was awarded First Place at Machol Shalem International Choreography Competition in Jerusalem and invited to compete in Ballett Gesellschaft’s Choreography Competition in Hannover. Thibaut is a certified teacher of Gaga, teaching most notably at the Paris Opera Ballet.
