In the workshop we will explore how to place sensations into physical form, to tap into our creatively as creators of movement, and learn material from Matan’s works.
Matan was born in Rishon LeZion, Israel in 1982. He started dancing as a folk dancer and at the age of 15 was accepted to Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts. During these years, Matan also studied at Bat Dor Dance School, and at age 17 he attended the Juilliard summer program.
After high school, at age 18, Matan was accepted to the Batsheva Ensemble. He performed there for two years before dancing with the main company for ten more seasons. In the twelve years Matan danced in Batsheva, he was a part of some of Naharin’s greatest creations such as Three, MAX, The Hole, and many more.
From 2013-2017, Matan was the director of Batsheva – The Young Ensemble, which has become one of the leading young companies in the dance world. The year he became director, he also won the Yair Shapira award, and the ensemble was named the best performing company by Israel’s Ministry of Culture.
Matan has undertaken a long, meaningful process with Naharin’s movement language and is a senior teacher of Gaga. He teaches Gaga around the world and is one of the main Gaga teachers for the Batsheva Ensemble.
