Shaga/People: Movement into Creation
Inspired by the Gaga movement philosophy of Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin, we approach movement as a dynamic, healing, and ever-changing power, using evocative ideas and imagery in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Class begins slowly and builds in intensity to continuous motion, providing enjoyable exercise for both body and soul. The second half of the class offers an intimate and deep exploration of the movement language though the creative process and choreography. We will develop movement phrases to experience the inhabitance and delicacy of form while generating embodied compositions.
“We become more aware of our form. We connect to the sense of the endlessness of possibilities. We explore multi-dimensional movement; we enjoy the burning sensation in our muscles, we are ready to snap, we are aware of our explosive power and sometimes we use it. We change our movement habits by finding new ones. We go beyond our familiar limits. We can be calm and alert at once.” – Ohad Naharin
