Not the lady…

OUT NOW! MR. GAGA, chronicles the ups and downs and moves of the renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin.

Reintroducing renowned choreographer Ohad Naharin, this film sheds light on various turning points in his professional and personal life: from his spinal injury to the loss of life partner/lead dancer Mari Kajiwara, and of course his development of the Gaga movement – which, as a language of self-expression, has nothing to do with the pop princess. Snapshots of Naharin’s pieces, such as Virus and Anaphase, reveal not just softly transitioning frames but also the eccentric mind behind the moves.

Mr. Gaga | Directed by Tomer Heymann (Israel, Sweden, Germany, Netherlands 2015) documentary. Starts May 12
