Gaga for the people

Gaga for the people

Gaga härstammar från idéen om rörelsens dynamiska, läkande och ständigt föränderliga kraft, utvecklat av den israeliske koregrafen Ohad Naharin. Metoden ger tillfälle att utforska och upptäcka kroppens oändliga rörelsemöjligheter, utmana våra vanor och ovanor samtidigt som vi kommer i kontakt med våra sinnen och inre fantasier. Metoden öppnar upp för lyssnandet till kroppens egna förmågor, och utforskandet inom ett brett spektrum av olika texturer, kvaliteter och rörelser. Gagametoden ger en upplevelse av frihet, var och en med sig själv tillsammans med andra.

Gaga

Gaga/people classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations, experience physical sensations, improve their flexibility and stamina, exercise their agility and explosive power, and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation. 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.
