Guy Shomroni

TEACHER: Guy Shomroni - Israel

Guy began dancing with Batsheva Ensemble in 2001 and joined the senior Batsheva Dance Company in 2004, where he performed numerous repertoire pieces by choreographers such as Ohad Naharin, Sharon Eyal, and Yasmeen Godder. Since leaving the company in 2012, he has served as Ohad Naharin’s assistant in the creation process for The Hole (2013). Guy is also an active DJ in Tel Aviv’s local scene, DJing at clubs and bars as well as DJing live for Batsheva Dance Company’s performances of Session. Guy has taught Gaga since 2002 in Israel and overseas. He gives workshops for professional dancers and also teaches Gaga/people classes.

GAGA MOVEMENT LANGUAGE & OHAD NAHARIN’S REPERTORY

Gaga is a movement language which Ohad Naharin developed over the course of many years and which is applied in daily practice and exercises by the Batsheva Dance Company members. 

The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement. Gaga is a new way of gaining knowledge and self-awareness through your body. Gaga provides a framework for discovering and strengthening your body and adding flexibility, stamina, and agility while lightening the senses and imagination. Gaga raises awareness of physical weaknesses, awakens numb areas, exposes physical fixations, and offers ways for their elimination. The work improves instinctive movement and connects conscious and unconscious movement, and it allows for an experience of freedom and pleasure in a simple way, in a pleasant space, in comfortable clothes, accompanied by music, each person with himself and others. 

Gaga has two tracks: Gaga/people and Gaga/dancers.

This workshop gives the participants an opportunity to learn excerpts of Ohad Naharin’s choreographic works from the company’s dancers and teachers.  In this class, dancers apply their training in Gaga to the repertory.

* It is highly recommended that students register for both the Gaga Movement Language class and the Ohad Naharin Repertory class as they compliment each other. You can take the Gaga Movement class and not the Repertory, but you may not register for the Repertory without the Gaga Movement Language.
