Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin is one of the dance world’s most important figures. He can be demanding and intimidating, but professional dancers have pushed beyond their personal limits to express his unique movement language. It’s called “gaga.” Naharin says it’s about listening to the body before telling it what to do. Director Tomer Heymann joins us to tell the fascinating story of Naharin's life and how his unique artistic vision has influenced modern dance.
On Sunday, November 5, the I. J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center in Salt Lake City is screening Tomer Heymann's film Mr. Gaga as part of an evening of entertainment. That event is open to the public, with ticketed/paid admission, and it begins at 6 p.m.
The JCC will also be hosting a free screening of the film on Monday, November 6, at the Hayes Christian Theatre at the University of Utah School of Dance.
