Join Alejandra Jara for a weekend workshop opportunity full of Gaga, dance, and improvisation. She will not only share her over 11 years of experience as a Gaga teacher but also her unique sensibility for movement and her own research for improvisation tools.

Workshop will take place in Cologne from 11:00 till 15:00. Classes will be taught in English and German!!!!

11:00 – 12:00 Gaga/people class
12:15 – 13:15 Movement research class
13:30 – 15:00 Improv/composition

Gaga/people classes are open to people ages 16+, regardless of their background in dance or movement. No previous dance experience is needed.
Gaga/people classes last for one hour and are taught by dancers who have worked closely with Ohad Naharin. Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand. Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.
The Gaga class will be followed by improvisation and composition workshop. During the research we are going to go deeper into specific elements of the Gaga language, opening new possibilities in our own movement through different tasks. Moreover, it will be a chance to connect to the way Alejandra approaches movement
