“Gaga is the name of the movement that the [Batsheva] company is trained in daily. With Gaga we discover our movement patterns, and we become attuned to our weaknesses and to the places of atrophy in our bodies. We become more efficient in our movement and it allows us to go beyond familiar movements. We connect to our joy of dance and to our explosive power.”
–Ohad Naharin, artistic director of Batsheva Dance Company
