Über die Veranstaltung
TOTAL BODY AWARENESS - with Tanja Saban
DEEP SENSORY BODY AWAKENING III with TANJA SABAN
Gaga, phrase work and somatic sequencing
Living inside a body is extraordinary; dancing with an awakened sensory body is magic.
In gaga we explore how we move from sensations and how our sensations can be an engine for our movement. We connect to pleasure and playfulness while we are multitasking, challenging our body and mind to become available. The deeper we dive into our sensory body, the more possibilities are opening up. Becoming aware of and differentiating sensations in the many layers of our body creates room for an organic reorganization of our movement habits. It connects us to flow, ease and our passion to move. We enrich our sensitivity and refine our ability to express, in the small and big gestures.
Fluid identities - phrase work (Saturday)
A choreographed sequence is the starting point and our creative restraint. Finding precision and defining the identity of a phrase- its spatial structure, textures, dynamics and rhythms- feeds into our movement vocabulary and helps us reflect on how we are using the elements of the dance in our body.
The next stage is about interpretation and deconstruction. We use each others movement, interpreting the interpretation and deconstruct the movement material until new choreographic identities emerge.
Somatic sequencing (Sunday)
The quality of our perception determines the quality of our movement. We are deep diving into an exploration of our anatomy and internal landscapes, reawakening our sensory body. Through movement, imagery and touch we explore different layers of tissues and their respective function. Fine tuning and differentiating our sensory awareness lets the body reorganize movement patterns and opens up a new range of possibilities in our bodies. We research where and how movement is initiated, how it sequences through the body and orchestrates rhythms and textures. Deep listening into our microcosm enriches our perception and refines our ability to articulate, in the small and big gestures.

What is GAGA people.dancers.?
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, everchanging 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 elimi-nation. 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.

Ohad Naharins‘ short explanation of what we do in a Gaga-Class:
“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.”
