The 3-day workshop consists of a one-hour Gaga/dancer class and a one-hour choreographic process rooted in the Gaga lens.
Gaga/dancer classes offer a framework for users to connect to their bodies and imaginations and enjoy the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere. Throughout the class, participants are guided by a series of evocative instructions deployed to increase awareness of and further amplify sensation, while information is layered, building into a multi-sensory, physically challenging experience.
Berit Ahlgren’s choreographic process:
Ahlgren spent a year in Tel Aviv, immersed in Gaga teacher training, between 2011-2012. She has been teaching Gaga nationally and internationally since, as well as choreographing her own body of work through a lens of the Gaga language. A personal and human take to the choreographic process allows each dancer an opportunity to move authentically, expressing their curiosities and passions through movement.
