About the movie
Ohad Naharin is an Israeli contemporary dancer and dance company artistic director – and one of the most prominent and productive choreographers in the world. Using intimate rehearsal footage, extensive unseen archive materials and stunning dance sequences, the film is a unique portrait of the 64-year-old artist at the most critical point of his personal life. Naharin is the originator of an innovative movement language, Gaga, which is as a growing force for both dancers and non-dancers. We follow Naharin between Japan, Holland, Sweden and Israel, and see how he has redefined the language of modern dance through his uncompromising work with dancers.
