Mr. Gaga Jewish Film Festival

Inspiring and tough, charismatic yet prickly, Ohad Naharin is Mr. Gaga, Israel’s rock star choreographer and the artistic director of the Batsheva Dance Company. Raised on a kibbutz in the 1950s and only receiving his first formal training at the age of 22, Naharin is a larger-than-life, picaresque hero, whose biography resembles a Who’s Who of modern dance. Naharin invented his own playful and exploratory style of movement called Gaga and has created some of the most provocative and physically demanding choreography of the 21st century. This film is a fascinating look at the life and work of one of the most unconventional figures in the contemporary world of dance. Documentary Spotlight Audience Award winner, South by Southwest. Special Guest former New York Ballet dancer and dancephotographer Steven Caras
