Film Screening: 19.00 – 20.30
Conversation: 20.45 – 21.30

A documentary, Mr. Gaga, examines the life of Ohad Naharin, the inventor of Gaga. In the documentary, Tomer Heymann, the filmmaker, presents the rehearsal footage with an extensive unseen archive and breathtaking dance sequences of Batsheva Dance Company. Heymann explains the birth of the story “The seeds for this film were planted about 20 years ago, when I first saw Naharin's Batsheva Dance Group on stage. A continuum of movement, music, energy, sexuality, sensuality, and dancers you could fall in love with without knowing why. From that evening on, I became an obsessive consumer of Batsheva’s art of dance. Naharin is a tough nut to crack, very complex and a contradictory character, which makes him a fascinating subject for a documentary film.”
