The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies & the UA School of Dance Present:
An Evening with Yaniv Abraham & Guy Shomroni
Guy Shomroni and Yaniv Abraham, dance artists from Tel Aviv, will take the audience on an exploration of Gaga Dance, and its cultural impact on the field. As dancers with Israel’s internationally acclaimed company, Batsheva, Guy and Yaniv have worked closely with the company’s current director, Ohad Naharin, and have staged his choreography all over the world. In addition to preserving Naharin’s original creations, Guy and Yaniv are teachers of Gaga, a movement language and pedagogy developed by Naharin. Attendees to the evening will get to see excerpts of Naharin’s choreograhy, performed by the UA Dance Ensemble, will see film excerpts about Gaga, and will have the opportunity to interact directly with Yaniv and Guy.
