Mr. Gaga: Documentary of Israeli Choreographer Ohad Naharin

Focusing on one of the most important choreographers living today, Ohad Naharin, Mr. Gaga is an original and interesting documentary directed by Tomer Heymann.

Gaga is a form of dance, dubbed a “movement language” by its creator, the choreographer Ohad Naharin.

Mr. Gaga depicts Naharin’s life as a story of a controversial, political, entertaining figure, fighting for artistic perfection.

When he was 22, he was invited to perform with the prestigious Martha Graham dance company, and attended Juilliard and the School of American Ballet simultaneously.

Moving back to Israel, Naharin became the Artistic Director of the Batsheva Dance Company, developing gaga within his own ensemble.

Even after achieving acclaim, Naharin continues to engage in battles to realize his genuine vision, with his own dancers, and once even with the president of Israel.

Tomer Heymann has previously directed “Paper Dolls,” “Who’s Gonna Love Me Now,” and “I Shot My Love.”

Mr. Gaga will open in New York at The Elinor Bunim Theater in Lincoln Center and Film Forum on February 1, before expanding to additional markets in the U.S
