Gaga is the movement language that was developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years. The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement.

Gaga for people

Classes are open to the public and no previous dance experience is needed.
Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand. The classes offers a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Gaga for dancers

This is the daily training of Batsheva Dance Company members, and the class is open to professional dancers or advanced dance students.
The layering of familiar movements with Gaga tasks presents dancers with fresh challenges, and throughout the class, teachers prompt the dancers to visit more unfamiliar places and ways of moving as well. The class will deepen dancers awareness of physical sensations, expand their palette of available movement options, enhance their ability to modulate their energy and engage their explosive power, and enriche their movement quality with a wide range of textures.

Partnering Classes:

We start the class by opening our channels of awareness and connect to our partner by manipulating, testing and speculating with his/her structure and weight. A special focus in this phase is the use of our whole body doing the task, not only being limited to our hands and arms. In this first part the use of play- fullness allows us to connect to our instinctive and primitive side, tuning into a shared natural flow of breath. With the help of exercises in different constellations, every time changing and adapting to a new partner and universe - we listen, follow and direct the movement as one functioning organism through space. We get ready to jump, cross, push, pull, avoid, embrace and suspend each other. We like to focus on an organic way of Partnering, based on action/reaction principles inspired by Contact Improvisation and Fighting styles. We like to access the movement from a perspective of a deeper connection and try to avoid the superficial habit of copying shapes. Instead we motivate every couple to find a unique way of communicating with the partner and look for individual solutions and variations of the material. Another important aspect of our class is the constant change of the level of activity for both roles. We learn how much resistance, power and direction is needed to reach our maximum together by investigating with the given tools, and finally learning fixed Partnering material at the end of each class.


Ballett Level 2: Nederland Dance Theater – Meng-Ke Wu (Taiwan)

Meng-Ke Wu was born in Taichung with a passion in dancing since young. At the age of 21, she received grants from the National Taipei University of the Arts to pursue her professional career in Europe, and was awarded a contract from Tanztheater München. The next year, she joined NDT2 and became the first ever Taiwanese female dancer in this top tier dance company. In 2010, Meng-Ke won the Best Dancer Award and the Audience Award at the International Solo-Dance-Theatre Festival Stuttgart. She was promoted to NDT1 by the Artistic Director in 2013, and received a life tenure later on. During her time in NDT, she has worked with Jirí Kylián, the former Artistic Director; Ohad Naharin, the Artistic Director at the Israeli Batsheva Dance Company; Mats Ek, Swedish choreographer; Crystal Pite, Canadian choreographer and two times winner of the Olivier Awards; Gabriela Carrizo and Franck Chartier from Peeping Tom based in Belgium; Marco Goecke, German choreographer; Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar, the prominent choreographers from Israel; and Paul Lightfoot, the current Artistic Director of NDT, and Sol León, the House Choreographer of NDT.

During her tenure at NDT, her top-notch performance won the hearts of the audience and Dutch media. In 2012, Het Parool said the “dazzling Wu takes the spotlight.” The Theaterkrant said her solo in 2013 was “intriguing and forces admiration.” In 2015, she won the Best Dancer of the year by Dans Publiek. On the 2016 Holland Dance Festival with presence of the Dutch royal members, her duet with Marne van Opstal won the following praise from Dans Magazine: “the purity in this dance and the way of performance is brought with so much conviction that is simply breathtaking.” In 2017, The Times noticed “the remarkable Meng-Ke Wu” from her performance in the Edinburgh International Festival.

Experimental Program II: Organic Arcobatic Level 1 und 2 Alexandros Anastasiadis

Alexandros Anastasiadis (1987) owns a Bsc in Physics (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and Technische Universita¨t Berlin) and a degree of dance (Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance).
He had created and performed various dance and street theater performances with the Dance And The Mind collective in Thessaloniki and Berlin. He is a founding member of the La Otra Familia collective with whom they won the Audience Award at the Certamen Coreografico de Madrid in 2016 and have performed in festivals such as Deltebre Dansa, Dance Days Chania etc.

In 2017 he started working with Ultima Vez/Wim Vandekeybus, in the productions “In spite of wishing and wanting”and “Trap Town”.

Since 2011 he has been teaching his “Organic Acrobatics” workshops ( Chania Dance Days Festival, Dock 11 studios etc.) Through these workshops he aims to connect elements of acrobatics, dance and other disciplines he has practiced and most importantly, share his passion for movement.

Organic Acrobatic:

The goal of this class is to expand our body's capacity for movement, developing potency, versatility and creativity.
We will be building a vocabulary of movement based on acrobatics, setting the basics for the body to be able to move with freedom through all the levels, axes and directions. We will be working on our physical qualities (power, mobility, stamina, awareness...) in order to prepare the body for the new requirements and based on that, we will develop our coordination in gradually more complex movements.

The level of our physical qualities and our coordination determines the quality and ease with which we perform movements, making them more organic and applicable. We will be practicing full dancing as a way to engage our body and allow it to connect all the acquired information. Both through improvisation and set material, our goal will be to reach a point of high energy as a group, where we are mutually inspired to play, learn, create and perform. This I believe is the most important thing I want to share, enjoying movement and through that letting the body's intelligence Express. 



Experimental Program I: Collision and flow Level 1 und 2 – Damien Fournier

danced in Sidi Larbi CHERKAOUI

Damien graduated from CNAC (Centre national des arts du cirque /France), where he specialized in partnering, acrobatics and dance.

Already during the study he started to develop a very own style between dance and acrobatics. In his work as a teacher Damien conveys the technical know-how as well as how to be sensitive and emotionaly involved when performing.

In his career Damien was part of more than 37 productions. He worked amongst others with Josef NADJ, Helder Seabra, Kitsou DUBOIS, Damien JALET, Alexandra Waierstall. His biggest collaboration is with Sidi Larbi CHERKAOUI. During twelve years Damien performed in the award-winning shows “Babel (words)” and “Puz/zle”. Furthermore he was dancing in « Myth », « Sutra », the movie « Anna Karenina » and « Milonga ».

Collision and flow:

Each creations in which I participated were the space within rich discovery, a singular transformation and a unique expression.Thanks to the diversity of artistic proposals and the diversity of inspiring artists I've share the stage like circus artists, contemporary dancers, tango dancers, shaolin kung-fu monks or even deaf peoples. I created over time a link between those various influences. This step by step experience helped me to open my entire perception of the world, to develop a sensitive approach to my body and opened my mind of an artistic and human way. 

As the mirror of those links, I will propose to the participant a glimpses of what I find interesting to go through.

We will focus on finding freedom in movement, taking the attention to breath in order to recycle energy and use the body efficiently. Certain images and dynamics will be introduced in order for the individual to discover their own personal responses and fullest potential within a structured frame. Through an open and process driven atmosphere, I will slowly encourage theatrical inputs and images to give meaning to movement. Using specific energies and clear images to enhance creativity and physicality.

We will learn small repertoire phrases from several pieces. Each participant will then be invited to create their own material as well as develop and transform these taught repertoire phrases. We will also explore the ideas behind the themes of making the piece and each individual will be encouraged to create their own responses to the tasks that are set.
